Episode 30 – Kveik Helles

(1 customer review)

In recent years strains and cultures of yeasts from Norway have started to get a lot of attention in the brewing world. Unlike other strains they ferment clean even when fermenting at temperatures as high as 40°C! But can it make a good lager? Using a traditional Munich Helles as a base and an isolated strain of Kveik, Mike hopes to find out.

    This recipe was great fun to brew and the Kveik just took off like a rocket and was mostly done a 2/3 days, but I let it ferment in 1.5 weeks.
    I bottled it straight away and have put down now to let flavour develop.
    The yeast all drops to the bottom, so you get a nice clean result.
    I was a little worried about carbonation, since there didn’t seem to be much yeast left in suspension, I tasted a bottle after 2.5 weeks in storage and it had light carbonation and it was really delicious, but need to be a bit more patient.
    (Can’t wait to do this one again)
