This strain has been traditionally used in Norwegian farmhouse style beers however, due to it's fermentation temp range can be used in a variety of beers from pseudo lagers, Belgian inspired, and hop forward beers. The possibilities seem endless when fermenting with Loki. On the cool end of the range Loki is super clean; producing little to no esters.

Brewing Properties of Loki

The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.

Alcohol Tolerance
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
10%
Attenuation
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
75-85%
Flocculation
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
Medium-High
Optimal Temperature
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
65-100° F
(18-38° C)
