The Voss kveik comes from Sigmund Gjernes in Voss, Norway. Voss is situated south of the Jostedal glacier. Voss was somewhat isolated from the larger cities, and most people was farming and self sustained. People shared kveik
mainly with each other, and because of the distance to other settlements the kveik was rarely mixed with other types. The Voss kveik is unique in taste and aroma, much because of the great work done by Sigmund and others to
preserve the yeast throughout the years.
Flavor and aroma has fruity notes with orange and citrus being the main characteristics. The intensity is medium to high at high fermentation temperatures, and at lower temperatures it will be less intens.
Kveik is a versatile type of yeast, and you can brew several different types of beers including traditional farmhouse, stouts and porters, seasonal beers, IPA and many more. At low mash temperatures you will get high attenuation and a dry beer, and the cloves and anis flavor really come through. Use your imagination, experiment with new recipes, and this yeast will not let you down.
