    I have never used nutrients in any of my brews.

    What yeast nutrient do you use as I'm looking to get some to use with Kveik.

    I recently bought some Fermentus Mobile Voss Kveik and received a vial that definitely has more than 1 teaspoon in (haven't got it to hand to see if it has a measured volume). My question is, will it be okay for me to open this and pour out one teaspoon on a sanitised teaspoon and then then reseal the vial to use at a later date or would it be in some way compromised once I've opened the vial?

    As long as you use a sterilised spoon I think you'll be fine.

    I only use it with my Kveik brews since they are normally under 1050OG and I've read that Kveik needs more nutrients with low gravity beers since its been used on high gravity beers for many generations and is used to a lot of nutrients.

    That's strange because my lowest gravity beer was an American wheat and it finished at 1.008. The Vienna lager finished at 1.014 and the stout at 1.016. The stout being the strongest starting gravity

    So for a 15 litre brew with an OG 1050 do you reckon ONE teaspoon of Nutrient will be enough?

    I've no nutrients neither with a slurry pitch and have had no issues.I harvested the slurry from the bitter using Kveik yeast and have around 500ml including hop debris which is just going to get pitched on my next brew.FWIW the only nutrients i use are for Turbo Cider.

    The Hornindal strain is supposed to attenuate to 75% anyone with any of this strain find this is correct/wrong?

    I used it the first time recently and it's attenuated 70%. I'm waiting to see if it is fully attenuated or if it's just stuck.

    I messaged the seller to find out.
    He replied very quickly - about half an hour!

    Hi,
    As the description says, it’s enough for 5 gal batches, up-to 30L or so. There’s 4g in a pack.

    Yeah I know. I not sure the nutrients are needed. I just put them in after reading other people's observations. Also we forget that even though we have the same strain of Kveik (Voss, horningdal, etc) it's not the same yeast. Everything we do with it changes it. I think that simply some of us are lucky with our yeast. My beers have never stalled.

    My mix of Voss and Framgarden tastes like a winner. I can say there are certainly no ill effects from leaving your beer in the fermentor for weeks. Life has gotten in the way and I have been unable to find time to brew or keg anything.
    I had a taste of this raw beer I made weeks ago thinking it might be a bit bland. I remember not using much hops and half was intended for raspberries. It's so very fruity, cannot believe it's not been dry hopped. Tastes like a high quality commercial beer. Stunned to be honest. I am kegging half the rest will sit on 2kg raspberries for a week or so.

    Sounds awesome. You may have hit the exact amount of the two then. I've never tried ebbegarden but I love Voss. If you were in Norway I'd ask you to send me a bit of your mix.

    I’m thinking of brewing a big beer to make use of kveik’s faster conditioning times (and to use up some LME I have lingering in the shed).
    Possibly a RIS or a barley wine.

    Which kveik would be best suited to this? I don’t plan on going over 10% so alcohol tolerance won’t be the deciding factor.
    I already have some hornindal but should I be looking at a different strain? And what temps - presumably normal ale temps to avoid fruitinesss?
