Test batch, august 2019

We were lucky enough to get some barley which was grown in 2018. We took it to Mack microbrewery in Tromsø, milled it and brew a small batch using Macks equipment.

We used a very old yeast-strand, called “KVEIK”, for fermenting our wash. This yeast is a very old and traditional farmers yeast, which has been used for almost a thousand year for brewing beer in Norway.

After a week of fermentation, the beer / wash was ready. We reached an alcohol – level of 4,6 % abv. The wash was then distilled 2 times and put on a small cask (3 l.) at ABV 63%.
