Kveiking A44

$11.99

Imperial Yeast's A44 Kveiking is a blend of 3 Kveik strains that will conquer wort and leave tropical fruit flavors in its wake. It will produce an insane amount of pineapple, guava and other exotic tropical fruit aromas. This strain thrives in hot fermentations when big complex ester profiles are desired. A low pitch rate can be used to drive these aromatics even higher but you should be wary to ensure that this low pitch rate is combined with a continuously high fermentation temperature. If the temperature drops too low, the corresponding level of attenuation can be low, especially with high terminal gravities. 

Since this blend contains flocculent and non-flocculent strains the clarity of the final beer produced can be variable.

If you need a substitution we recommend Imperial A43 Loki or A04 Barbarian.

This yeast blend can be used in practically anything from new school hazy IPAs to traditional Norwegian farmhouse brews, but it also works well when fermenting kettle soured worts for a strong tropical fruit character.
