All,

This thread will serve as a placeholder to ask Wicklow Hops Company questions about their yeast and also a place for them to showcase their latest wares. If you've any questions for Philip and his team feel free to post them here.

Yeah let's do it Mick, Thanks for the reminder. Il check it very often and try and get the answers out.

We don't have a Altbier yeast yet but will put it on my list! At the moment my main focus homebrewer wise is the new kviek strains including a lager one, lager yeasts in general, the low ABV yeast and some pichable Lacto.

I have a question for @Thewicklowhopscompany with regards the Kveik strains.
I have read that some of the strains have and can contain bacteria. I have no problem with this apart from the fear of contamination of equipment. Most of the stuff I have is stainless anyway but I am more concerned about plastic quick disconnects and beer line in my kegerator. I have only used the Valkyrie kveik so far and have segregated all equipment until I am fully sure but plan to try out the rest over the coming months. So, should any of the Kveik strains supplied by WHC be treated like Brett and therefor use separate plastic from "clean" strains? Since most of them appear to be some sort of Saccharomyces i'm probably grand but would be best to hear from the lab!

Any hints on what the Fruit Bowl strain is?

Also some of your yeasts are a mix of strains. Can you give more information on how you determine the mix?
Tapped: FES, NEIPA, CocoIMS, Flanders 2018, Passion Fruit/Peach BW
Fermentors: Raspberry Wheat, Session IPA
Bottled: Cherry Lambic 2019

I will let Philip be the final authority here, but I think all the WHC kveik products are single isolated strains.

Thewicklowhopscompany

They are all isolated non diastatic sacc strains with the bacteria removed.
So I wouldn't be worried about cross contamination.
Fruit bowl is a blend of London three and Vermont.

Any chance you'd share what station TBL is? Not much online about it.

I was just about to ask the same!

Hi Folks,

I haven't seen fresh stock of the whc yeast in the homebrew shops of late.
Are homebrew scale versions of the yeasts still available?

Yes they are. Give them a call and they can point you right. Clubs do monthly buys from them as well

Unfortunately the monthly club buys might be hurting the brewers buying from the shops.
Another reason to get involved with a local club.
