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 95°F (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. Ferment in the heat of summer!

Quick ferment

Review by Chris M on 8/21/2022

This yeast ferments extremely quick and can handle warm fermenting temps with no off taste. Excellent Ale taste and cloudiness for a hazy IPA.

Q: How long will it last in the fridge after it is recieved?

A: Currently, the expiration date of the WLP518 is Oct 22, 2022. This can vary, but we always try to make sure our liquid yeast is good for at least one month after reciept.
