Details

White Labs PurePitch WLP518 Opshaug Kveik Ale Yeast: Sourced from our friend Lars Marius Garshol, this Kveik strain was isolated from a mixed culture which belonged to Harald Opshaug, a farmhouse brewer in Stranda, Norway. This strain was originally used in the 1990s to produce several kornl-style beers. It is a clean fermenting yeast and has tolerated temperatures up to 95F (35C) while finishing fermentation within three to four days. The hop-forward, clean characteristics of this strain make it ideal for IPAs and pale ales.

Recommended For: American IPA, Blonde Ale, Double IPA, Hazy/Juicy IPA, Pale Ale, Porter, Red Ale & Stout

Attenuation: 69 - 80%

Flocculation: Medium to High

Optimum Fermentation Temp: 77 - 95F (25 - 35C)

Alcohol Tolerance: 15% +

STA1 QC Result: Negative

Concerned about shipping? Don`t be! We ship all of our liquid yeast with ice packs during the warmer months.


 

White Labs NEW PurePitch has improved shelf life through process improvements and laboratory analysis, White Labs monitor the glycogen content of the yeast cells to give them more energy when starting a fermentation.

Each PurePitch package pitches a consistent 7.5 million cells/mL.

PurePitch Next Generation features a breathable proprietary dual-layer film designed to allow for more effective off-gassing to reduce product inflation and deliver higher viability and shelf life for the yeast. While the industry standard shelf life is 2-4 weeks, PurePitch Next Generation achieves an impressive five to seven-month shelf life. The cap allows for ease of use, no more scissors or fumbling with two-layer film, and the option to open and reseal for sampling or using partial pouches.

A QR code on each package directs you to all the information you need to make the best beer: the quality report of every lot, additional strain-specific information, data, and recipes. ?White Labs is the industry leader in quality with the same quality and care taken for every culture, including proprietary qPCR methods (developed with Invisible Sentinel) for higher limits of detection. The online pitch rate calculator will recommend the right amount of yeast for a foolproof fermentation or allow you to customize the amount based on your desired pitching rate.
