GY135: Hornindal Kveik #5
Hornindal Kveik #5
Attenuation Medium Gravity* 75% - 79%
Attenuation High Gravity* 72% - 75%
Temperature Range† 70 - 100 F
Description: A traditional Norwegian Kveik yeast that can be fermented at 85-100 F for fast fermentation and no off flavors. We have found a 15 P wort attenuates to 75%-78% in as little as 4 days at 90F. Subtle notes of tropical fruit make this yeast an excellent choice for clean hop-forward IPAs and Pale Ales.
Representative Styles: Pale Ale, IPA, NEIPA
* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F. Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.
† The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
