They don't specify it is Kveik - Northern European Ale Yeast. Suitable to brew low ester ales with a clean palate even at high temps

I hope it is, as it has characteristic of Kveik

It certainly seems like it is, I just thought that it was only available as liquid commercially at present. Looking forward to hearing how it performs now.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but that CML 'Norse' is not a Kveik strain.

Had this in the fridge from the last citrus pale I did.

Ragnar Kveik, was first time re-using any yeast, washed it and kept it in the fridge for 10 days, brewed a batch today, cooled only to 40c, pitched it at 15:30, it was bubbling within two hours, winter throw wrapped around the brewbucket.

I just bough those and will try to do Veinna lager with them. Hopefully they will do nicely. David use Voss Kveik and said in his video with a great result
Be careful I followed the recipe and it turned out far to dark. Maybe I made a balls up somewhere. The only thing I can think of is that I mashed for 3 hrs. Let me know how it turns out

The last pale ale i made was not good. I thought it was promising at first but it was brownish and oxidised. I think the large temperature difference in my garage and 20l of head space did not help. Its a shame as it could of been a great beer and i had already put some onto 2kg of raspberries. I wonder if that will be drinkable.
Kegged a no boil stout which was actually older and that is fine. Pretty good in fact and looks clear at 20c so made me think suck back was the problem.

Got some info from from CML about hog-norsk yeast
. The Norsk yeast isn’t technically a Kveik yeast, but in saying that it gives clean results at high temperatures. The reason the manufacturer is reluctant to say it’s Kveik is because (apparently) there’s no real definition of one??? However, it’s based on a high Norsk farmhouse ale yeast that the lab were playing around with. Some good feedback on it too from those who’ve used it and it’s pretty popular.

Sounds like bollocks to me. If there is no clear definition, all the more reason to call it Kveik and cash in on the trend.

For what it's worth, I found the yeast over-attenuative and not altogether pleasant. Others may have had better a experience than me.

I have made a small batch with Voss. Really unclear, weird activity. I was expecting big krausen like something and didn't really get much. The taste though was good. Would do again if I could get it clear.
I've used voss 3 times in beer and each time it's been hazy, I think it's not a very flocculant yeast. Hazy cider though, it's just scrumpy.

Out of stock unfortunately. I think I will buy some omega and reuse as many time as I will be able to.
Need to get myself canonical flask and build a stir plate
I've been watching that ebayer he seems to sell out a lot but restock a lot too. Obviously very popular seeing as it's cheaper than the liquid stuff. Worth keeping an eye on the listing.

You dont have a conical and stir plate. It just makes things a bit easier/faster. I just use a demijon and shake it a few times per day

He isn’t much cheaper than elsewhere - I only paid £8 for my Kveik compared to his £7. Given his stock spoilage will be zero, it’s a shame he’s not a bit more generous with the pack size. :)
