Kveik yeast has grown from its roots in Norwegian homebrewing to a yeast strain used by hobby and professional brewers around the world.
Kveik is known for being tolerant of warm fermentation temperatures—sometimes up to 100° F—and quick fermentation times. Brewers have recently started using it in place of other yeast strains in their favorite ale and lager styles, and it’s even making its way into mead and cider.
