Sourced from our friend Lars Marius Garshol, 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,
PurePitch® Next Generation, an evolution of White Labs’ PurePitch® – the most superior and consistent yeast on the market – has been made even better with new packaging powered by FlexCell® Technology for ease of use and a pitch rate resulting in a foolproof fermentation every time.
clean characteristics of this strain make it ideal for IPAs and pale ales.
