Title: Trying a lager with Kviek
Post by: ynotbrusum on December 19, 2018, 06:35:31 PM
Has anyone tried to make a lager style with the Kviek strains, such as Hornindal?  I had a beer at a club party last night that was remarkably clean for an ale - it was part of an experiment with Kviek strains - each strain was pitched with one high and one low temp example.  This beer I sampled was an early release of one example (Hornindal fermented cold - 64F) of the full session of examples that we are examining in January.  It was so cleanly fermented that I talked with the brewer about trying a lager temp and lager recipe (maybe 56-58F)...any thoughts or experiences with Kviek strains that cool?

I haven't tried it personally, but I've heard that what you are suggesting will produce a clean beer from sources that I respect.  Many kveik strains have a very wide temperature range that they will ferment within. You will need to experiment. I would be sure to use a POF- strain.

Yes, most are POF- (no 4VG production) and many are able to ferment maltotriose.
