    Kolnasata Kveik - Escarpment Labs

    Kolnasāta is sourced from a traditional Latvian brewer named Dainis Rakstiņš from the Bērzpils area. Despite the name, it is neither a Kolsch strain nor a Pils strain ;-) Kolnasāta offers up ample doses of pineapple esters along with medium attenuation and flocculation. It is POF- (non-phenolic) which means it can be used in a wide range of beers. The traditional beer it ferments is made by heating the mash using hot stones!

    Notes from the Team at Escarpment Labs:
    - This is not a kveik yeast but rather a continental European farmhouse strain. 
    - We obtained permission to offer this strain from the brewer, who requested that anyone selling the yeast call it by the name Kolnasāta.
    - We have performed whole genome sequencing of this strain. Genetically, it is part of a group of other Continential European Farmhouse Ale strains and is different from kveik. More on that to come!
    - This strain is STA1- but shows growth on LCSM Agar indicating it is resistant to copper sulfate. 

    Further Details:

    - 6 month shelf life *NEW* (explanation)

    - 180 billion cells which will be adequate pitch rate for a standard-gravity brew
