Description

This kveik (dialect word for “yeast” in Norwegian) strain was isolated from a mixed culture which belonged to Harald Opshaug, a farmhouse brewer in Stranda, Norway. This strain was originally used in the 1990s to produce several kornøl-style beers, which means "corn (grain) ale".

It is a clean fermenting yeast and has tolerated temperatures up to 35°C while finishing fermentation within three to four days. The hop-forward, clean characteristics of this strain make it ideal for IPAs and pale ales.
