White Labs has made their Opshaug strain available year-round! This unique kveik strain, isolated from a mix culture belonging to Harald Opshaug, a farmhouse brewer in Standa, Norway, has all the hallmarks of a kveik yeast: a wide temperature range, fast fermentation and clean profile. Opshaug also has high attenuation, medium to high flocculation characteristics, and a medium to high alcohol tolerance. This strain is perfect for use in the production of pale ales and IPAs, tending to dry beers out and allowing hops to be well-pronounced!

ICE PACK INCLUDED
We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!
