Voss Kveik ceiling temperature

Post by andrewhines1984 » Mon Jan 27, 2020 6:50 pm

Hey, I pitched Voss kveik at 40C yesterday, but haven’t seen any fermentation action even close to what I was expecting - it’s been pretty slow.

Last time I used Voss, I pitched at 32 and within an hour my airlock was bubbling at a ridiculous rate.

Anyone have any experience with Voss and has found a “sweet spot” temperature?

Is it possible that it finished overnight? I had a batch accidentally get bumped up to 50C, and it finished fermenting overnight, we never saw any airlock activity because if finished so quick!

Yikes, that didn’t even cross my mind as a possibility. Will check the gravity. How did that turn out?

Decent - it did weird things with the bitter orange additions, it scored around 34, but I entered it in the wrong category so that super burned me.

Also noteworthy was that it is probably the clearest beer I've ever made, and without any lagering.

OG was 1.064, it’s sitting at 1.030 now, so it’s presumably still got some chugging to do.

I will say that I notice the orange a lot more than my last batch (perhaps a result of the higher temp?).

I’m excited for this one to finish up. Should be good.

Do you live in a sauna? Hmmm, maybe this yeast is actually from Finland.

Two heat belts, didn't think it would hit that high, used my temp controller on the Belgian I was fermenting at the same time.

Sometimes if the seal on your fermentor is going the gas will escape around the lid instead of through the airlock

That might be going on, though I have seen some bubble action.
