Pitching/Fermentation: A traditional Norwegian kveik directly from the Gjernes farmstead, Voss Kveik's orange-citrus notes present throughout its wide temperature range. So, like the mango-honey profile of Hothead® (OYL-057), Voss Kveik's orange-citrus is relatively clean across its fermentation temperature range, and pairs well with citrusy, fruity hops. Ester intensity and fermentation speed take off at higher temperatures. Non-phenolic and no noticeable fusels, even at higher temperatures.

When you think about it they are nothing more than a small extract brew. Show Me How To Make A Yeast Starter
