Firstly thank you Niels for getting me back on to the forum. Had another series of tech issues. Anyhow did a NEIPA with Kveik yeast from the lads at cross my loof. And wallop what a crazy 72 hours fermentation. Felt a touch weird pitching yeast at 35 deg C and putting both brew belts around the fermenter and turning up the heater in the fridge to max to maintain 33 deg C fermentation temperature. Checked the gravity this morning and it has reached FG already. Very clear too, (bit too clear if you ask me,). Popped in the the dry hops and will keep you all posted . Anyone else tried this yeast variety yet?

This is my recipe, as ever I tweaked it from numerous sources and used what I had available:-

20 litre batch
4500g pale malt,
1000g wheat malt,
500g rolled oats(pre boiled,),

mash at 65C for 90 mins
mash out at 78C for 15

90 minute boil
15g fuggles at 60 left
20g of citra,calypso,mosaic and columbus, at 10 mins left,
30 of citra,calypso,mosaic and columbus at flame out.

Chill to 35C and pitch yeast, keep temp at least 30-40C for the entire fermentation.

Day 3 dry hop with 50g of citra,calypso,mosaic amd columbus. Leave for 4 days and rack off.
enjoy!!

I used the Hornindal Yeast to marry up with the tropical hop profiles. Next up I have ordered the #1 Sigmund Voss to try that with my house version of Gamma Ray (blood orange and pommello APA really,) I made up that recipe before Gamma Ray became available on-line. Back to the old ways of sipping and debating with others.

Have a American pale ale style on tap which I did with a midtbust kveik. Really enjoying it, citrus, grapefruit but not quite the bitterness of an IPA. Did it late January when ambient day temperature was around 30C. Real quick fermentation within 3 days plus dry hopping for 4 days. Done and dusted after 7 days. Awesome.
