Kveiking was originally a seasonal yeast from Imperial Organic Yeast, but has recently became available in their standard lineup. A blend of three different traditional Norweigan kveik, Kveiking can produce a ton of tropical fruit aromas! Pineapple and guava dominate the aroma profile, with other tropical and stone fruits mixed in. While a lower pitch rate can be used to really drive these aromas, care should be taken to ensure a continuous high fermentation temperature with a low pitch rate. Low temperatures can lead to a lower attenuation rate and higher terminal gravities. Otherwise, this is much like many of the kveik strains, having a wide temperature range and used for a number of different beer styles. It works well in hazy IPAs and traditional Norweigan ales. However, it also works well with kettle-soured worts to produce an amazing fruit character in the finished beer. A real winner available for a limited time only!
