WLP518 Opshaug Kveik Ale liquid yeast

Out of stock!


This kveik 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.

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.

Alcohol tolerance: 8-12%

Attenuation: 70-80%

Optimal fermentation temperature: 25°-35°C
