Isolated from Omega's Hornindal Kveik (OYL-091) culture, Lutra™ is shockingly clean with unrivaled speed when pitched at 90°F (32°C). The strain is perfect for brewing a refreshing pseudo-lager without the lead time of a lager. Lutra is your worry-free way to navigate the evolving demand for cold ones.
After a customer brewed an unusually clean German-style pilsner beer with Hornindal Kveik blend (OYL-091), Omega's R&D lab discovered that one of the strains hidden within the blend, now dubbed Lutra™ Kveik (OYL-071), ferments a wildly clean canvas that can be used for pseudo-lagers, West Coast IPAs or American Stouts.
For the most lager-like profile, we suggest fermenting between 68℉-72℉.
- Temp Range: 68 - 95°F
- Attenuation: 75 - 82%
- Flocculation: Medium-High
- Alcohol Tolerance: 15%

Fermenting short lived. Final beer did not have much carbonation and was very sweet, like a cupcake. Would not make it again.
Great yeast thank you
I put together a fairly simple grain-bill and hop profile, threw in the Lutra, and put my fermenter outside to let it go. Temps got up to around 85°F during the day. After 3 days I racked to the keg, chilled, and force carbed. On day 4 I was drinking this stuff, and it was delicious. The "grain to glass in 4 days" statement was entirely true for me. This Kveik is amazing, and I can't wait to see what else I can do with it!
