Marina Russian Farmhouse
While not technically Kveik, this S. cerevisiae strain from deep in Chuvashia in Russia is quite unique, and we thought it was worth sharing in the Kveik Ring program.
Marina displays notes of white wine, baking spice, and light vanilla. It is closest in profile to Belgian ale strains and would be at home in Belgian styles or as the primary strain in a mixed culture ferment. Traditionally, it is used in a rye-heavy boiled-mash beer.
Some additional information from Escarpment Labs:
Attenuation is low (so roughly 70-75%), temp range is moderate (21-25 C). My experience with these yeasts, they typically works best in darker, maltier beers where some sweetness is desired. (More information will be updated when available).
