Yeast Thumb 19

Lutra™ Kveik

Isolated from our Hornindal Kveik (OYL-091) culture, Lutra™ is shockingly clean with unrivaled speed when pitched at 90°F (32°C). The strain is perfect for brewing an even more neutral and refreshing pseudo-lager at its lower temperatures, without the lead time of a traditional lager yeast. Lutra is your worry-free way to navigate the evolving demand for cold ones.

You may notice your homebrew package states Lutra Kveik's ABV as 11%. We have tested Lutra's limits extensively in hard seltzer fermentations, and find that Lutra will fully attenuate sugar-based fermentations to produce up to 15% ABV! Happy brewing!
