April 2021 Kveik Ring Release

Here's a bit of an interesting one for April! Sahti is a style of Finnish traditional beer which is brewed with juniper and traditionally lautered in a trough called a kuurna. While the traditional yeast has died out in Finland, we are offering here a strain of baking yeast commonly used in the Nordic countries for both baking and for brewing. Expect high attenuation, light phenols, and a strong banana aroma. Suitable for BOTH beer and bread! 


Temperature: 15-30ºC (59-86ºF)
Attenuation: 80-85% 
Suitable styles: Sahti, other Nordic ales, can be used in malty Belgian styles as well. 

About The Kveik Ring: Each yeast released will be tested by us for basic parameters (attenuation, flocculation, simple flavour descriptors) but we will turn further yeast characterization into a collaborative process. Contact us with your feedback at sales@escarpmentlabs.com.
