Kveiking is back!
This once limited release is now part of Imperial's year-round offerings.Kveiking is a blend of three Kveik strains that can produce an insane amount of pineapple, guava and other exotic tropical fruit aromas. The Kveiking blend thrives in hot fermentations when big complex ester profiles are desired. A low pitch rate can be used to drive these aromatics even higher but the brewer should ensure this low pitch rate can be combined with a continuously high fermentation temperature. If the temperature drops too low, the corresponding level of attenuation can be low, with high terminal gravities.
This blend contains flocculent and non-flocculent yeast strains, therefore the clarity of the final beers produced can be variable. Use this blend for anything from new school hazy IPAs to traditional Norwegian farmhouse brews. The Kveiking blend also works well when fermenting kettle soured worts when a strong tropical fruit character is desired.

Fermented my 1080 ipa in 2 days at 95 degrees and no blowout! Awesome. I’m going to replace my London Ale lll with this yeast.
