  • Are you a fan of lagers, but reluctant to brew them due to the conditioning time of 12-20 weeks? After an unusually clean German-style pilsner was brewed with a Hornindal Kveik blend, Omega's R&D lab discovered that one of those strains, now dubbed Lutra®, ferments a wildly clean canvas that can be used for pseudo-lagers, West Coast IPAs, American Stouts – the sky’s the limit!


    Lutra® is shockingly clean with unrivaled speed when pitched at 90°F (32°C). The strain is perfect for brewing an even more neutral and refreshing pseudo-lager at its lower temperatures, without the lead time of a traditional lager yeast. Lutra® is your worry-free way to navigate the evolving demand for cold ones.


    Now in dried form, Lutra®'s clean canvas, huge temperature range, high alcohol tolerance, and fast finishing speeds means unrivaled flexibility and versatility for nearly any style. From a refreshing pseudo-lager to a huge imperial stout -- for any reason you're using a neutral dry yeast, use dried Lutra® and get more, faster.
