PRE-ORDER for shipping in early March 2019…

Here we have a fantastic yeast strain isolated from a Ebbegarden kveik (“Norwegian Farmhouse Yeast”) culture kindly shared by a traditional Norwegian homebrewer.  Very similar to our Fehu (Framgarden kveik isolate) strain, a tasting panel noted flavors of pineapple, candy, and other pleasant, but difficult to describe flavors at both at normal (~72F/22C) and high fermentation temperatures (~95F/35C).  Would work well to add a more expressive fruity flavor profile to a pale ale or IPA.  Has a clean finish with no off-flavors that we can detect.  There are more experiments in progress to characterize the strain further and determine optimal pitch rates.  Note that this is not a true kveik which has multiple strains and sometimes bacteria.  For more info on kveik, see Larsblog or kveik page on Milk the Funk.

Basic characteristics:

Attenuation: 77+% (more experiments in progress)
Flocculation: High (more experiments in progress)
Temperature Range: 72-95F / 22-35C (more experiments in progress)
Alcohol Tolerance: >8% (should be at least 13%, more experiments in progress)
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Diastaticus (STA1 gene) genotype: Negative

This pitch contains 6 grams of dried yeast that is enough for a 1 bbl pitch up to 1.060.  The package comes vacuum sealed and should be used within 3 months if left in the fridge (or should last years in the freezer).
