Voss Kveik (ES-VOSS)
From: Escarpment Labs
Type: Kveik Yeast • Packet: Liquid
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
One of the most famous Norwegian Kveik yeasts. This is a single strain selected from Sigmund Gjernes' Voss Kveik. This yeast can ferment at up to 42ºC (Sigmund pitches at 40ºC and free rises from there!) with clean flavours and a prominent citrus aroma. We recommend warm fermentation temperatures (>25ºC), highly fermentable wort and yeast nutrients to ensure complete attenuation. This strain is also very alcohol tolerant and highly flocculent, although it will still produce considerable haze in heavily dry hopped NEIPAs.
#Citrus flavors with clean profile.
Brewing Properties of Voss Kveik
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
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.
