Description

Storage Info

The shelf life is 6 months and will be written on each tube, the ideal temperature is 4 degrees but simply put it just means keep it refrigerated and don’t allow it to freeze!

Our tubes are labeled as 200 billion cells but we pack considerably more to compensate for viability loss over the 6 months so the fresher the tube the better the fermentations will go!


Kveik Ragnarok

  • Fermentation: top
  • Temperature Range: 20 – 40°C
  • Attenuation: 68 – 80 %
  • Flocculation: very low
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 10 % ABV
  • Strain Profile: One of the most unique yeast trains in our collection this yeast was isolated from a Norwegian farm brewery in Vossenvangen. The traditional word for homegrown yeast is “kveik” and this strain is as pure kveik as they come. This strain is a fast fermenter with good attenuation, a light earthy spiciness, marked tartness and unique ester profile of orange peel. Despite fairly high attenuation, beer fermented with this yeast seems sweet due to increased fruity notes
