Bergen Bluestone Liquid Yeast | Kveik Strain

Name after the region in Norway where Lars Marius Garshol isolated a number of traditional yeast strains.

Bergen is traditionally used in the production of Norwegian Farmhouse Ale (Kveik), this strain is a fast fermenter with good attenuation, a light earthy spiciness, marked tartness and unique ester profile of orange peel.

This strain is prone to forming incredibly large flocs unlike any other yeast we’ve seen before, yet still remains highly attenuative.

Bergen also exhibits the ability to ferment wort over a large temperature range, 21–37 ºC. At the cooler end of the range Bergen is clean; producing little to no esters and phenols but builds a huge fruit ester profile as the temperature increases. 


Growth Temp Range: 21-37ºC
Flocculation: High
Attenuation: 78-73%

Recommended use for the following beer styles:

IPA Kveik Style Ale Porter

Recommended Fermenter

Research has shown that in order to extract the most flavour from hops and yeast, and to minimise contact with oxygen, pressure fermenters are the best fermenters for any style of beer which is why the manufacturer recommends to use one of the below fermenters:
