Since there have been several posts about kveik I thought there might be some Chicago area folks interested.

I saw that when I was looking at Omega's site last week. It's a little too pricy for me, and I'm not driving downtown to go drink beer. If it was a little more out in the burbs I might have considered it.

 

I'd rather put the price of a ticket (or two cause I'm not going to want to go alone) toward buying some more kviek. I actually reached out to Omega about their new Gulo yeast and am really interested in giving it a try!

woah yeah -  $75 is pretty steep.  and on top of that you have to buy food??  what are you getting for that $75 other than samples?

That’s just how beer fests are these days. Expensive.
I’m not surprised there are lots of beers for it. Lots of brewers are all about it these days. I’ve done two, both came out really nice. The fast turnaround is iffy tho. They definitely still mature similarly to regular ale yeast once fermented. Sure it’s ready in a week but it really comes together after another couple weeks

I'm had the exact same experience. IMHO, It's just not worth trying to figure out how to ferment so hot. I tried using them in the winter and I had a heater going on the fermeter the entire time, and it took just as long as a more traditional yeast.

 

The beers were good, no doubt. But I feel like I could achieve the same result with a more traditional yeast and have an easier time doing it.

 

Also, I believe only the "HOTHEAD" variety of kviek is said to ferment fast.
