Want to make a Yeast Starter? Home brewers are always led to believe making a yeast starter is for the advanced brewer. This could not be further from the truth. If anything beginning brewers should start with yeast starters. When you think about it they are nothing more than a small extract brew. Show Me How To Make A Yeast Starter

With a Little Luck...

So part of the trip had to undergo lack of refrigeration. I'm gambling on the fact that this yeast will remain hardy for a day/week yet. As soon as I got it, it went back into refrigeration; but I have yet to get the time slot to cook the dextrose water and mix the filtered cooling water into that to pitch the yeast at the right temperature. But I'm counting on it!

My new go-to

Basically, this is perfect for making highly drinkable product quickly. As good, or better, results as a good lager yeast with a fraction of the production time. No off flavors and ferments dry. Basically, I won't be going back to traditional lager (or ale) unless I am goofing around. It is that good.

I Can Brew Again!

My fermentation frig died and was a requirement for brewing in Florida. Kveik strains can ferment at room temperature with a clean finish. I fermented an Oktober Fest style with Lutra Kveik and it is wonderful. Who thought I could brew at 78 degrees F? Love it!

As Advertised

Pitched at 85, let it ferment at room temp somewhere in the 70's. 1 packet, no starter, went from 1.053 to 1.009 and was dropped crystal clear when I kegged at day 10. I do not perceive any added flavors from the yeast. This is more clean than any Ale yeast I have used. It did not produce the green apple or sulphur I normally notice with most lager yeasts either. Will be using again often.

Clean & Clear

Tested Lutra with an 1.047 OG adjunct lager recipe and 1500ml starter. Fermented at ambient basement temperatures (low-mid 70'sF), which is at the lower end of the recommended temperature range and may have led to the 12 day fermentation. The yeast is very chunky and settled well leaving a fairly clear beer to keg. Burst carbed and had FG 1.007 beer on tap in two weeks from brew day. Wisp of sulfur in the nose and solid body for a 148F mash. A bit blond-aleish but tasty now and should continue to mature with lagering. All-in-all, very pleased with the outcome. Will try to apply some heat next and see if the turn-around time can be shortened but taste maintained for those "Can you brew some beer for my party a week from Saturday?" requests.
