As this is not just any common yeast/yeast
Kveik Opshaug It has the ability to work in a wide temperature range.
Kveik, which means yeast in Norwegian, is a set of yeasts, mostly from the species Saccharomyces cerevisiae, of Norwegian origin and from nearby countries, where Farmhouse-style beers are cultured.
High temperatures during fermentation serve to increase the metabolic activity of the yeast, meaning the yeast will ferment at an exponentially faster rate. For kveik cultures the theory applies and many strains manage to reach final gravity within 48 hours. And that for breweries is wonderful! Any brewer will tell you that the amount of time the beer sits in the tank is a very important factor and with kveik strains the tank turnover increases considerably.
This fact benefits breweries that try to keep a tight schedule and small breweries benefit as they do not have a large number of tanks. Because kveik cultures are tolerant of high temperatures, ferment quickly, and have a very clean fermentation profile, they are very versatile and are used in many styles of beer.
American brewers have used these strains in a variety of styles such as NE IPAs, Hopped Red Ales, Pale Ales, Brut IPAs and fermentation methods range from 4°C to 43°C with brewers noticing more aromas at higher fermentation temperatures, but even thus, the end result being a clean profile.
Kveik Opshaug Can be inoculated directly into the wort or propagated.
