Info. Each pouch contains 150ml of live liquid yeast - keep refrigerated but raise to room temperature before pitching or creating a starter culture. Each pouch of WHC Labs yeast is sufficient for a 22/23 litres brew up to 1.065 gravity. For higher gravity/bigger brews make a starter culture or use more than one pouch.
Tip. Kveik needs a good dose of yeast nutrient to be added to the wort, more so than regular yeast. If the wort has a low amount of nutrients the Kveik will stress which will in turn produce a level of esters.
Tip. Ubbe Kveik. Keep the temperature down and add nutrient to get a cleaner ferment. Also, increasing the mash PH produces a crisper lager
