In each package you will find enough yeast to ferment 20 liters of must.
As it is not just any common yeast/yeast
Kveik Stranda It has the ability to work over a wide temperature range.
Kveik, which means yeast in Norwegian, is a group of yeasts, mostly of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae species, of Norwegian origin and from nearby countries, where there is a culture of Farmhouse-style beers.
Higher 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 time the beer remains in the tank is a very important factor and with the kveik strains the rotation of the tank increases considerably.
This fact benefits brewers that try to keep a tight schedule and small breweries benefit as they do not have a large number of tanks. Due to the fact that kveik cultures are tolerant to high temperatures, ferment quickly and have a very clean fermentation profile, they end up being very versatile and being used in various styles of beer.
American breweries have used these strains in several styles like NE IPA, Hop Red Ale, 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 Stranda It can be inoculated directly into the wort or propagated.
