The Eitrheim kveik comes from Reidar Eitrheim from Tokheim, Norway. Tokheim is located close to Odda in the heart of the Hardangerfjord and next to the Folgefonna National Park. The yeast has been passed on for generations,
and Reidar got it from his grandfather. The Eitrheim kveik gives an incredible taste of ripe pear, plum, raisin, prune and honey. The yeast is very versatile and can be used in different beer types such as IPA, Pale Ale, NEIPA, Stouts and Porters.
Flavor and aroma has fruity notes with ripe pear, plum/prune and honey being the main characteristics. The intensity is medium 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.
