For the first time, Bootleg Biology's most popular culture is now available as a Gluten Free pitch (Verified by independent lab testing). This is a great option for customers looking to make a clean, fast fermenting hard seltzer, cider, or mead that is still Gluten Free (sorghum based). If they see positive response to the Gluten Free option, They may make it available as an option for other cultures. Their standard propagation method uses barley malt.

OSLO is a modern take on traditional Norwegian farmhouse brewing cultures.
OSLO can comfortably produce beautifully clean, lager-like beers at temperatures as high as 98F (37C) without noticeable off flavors. At the high end of fermentation temperature, beers can finish attenuating in as little as three days! This culture’s versatility and neutral flavor profile allows you to effortlessly produce most beer styles.
Bootleg is the first yeast lab to release this unique Kveik-family culture sourced from a raw beer made by our good friends at Eik & Tid in Oslo, Norway.
Please note: It is highly recommended that a cold pack be purchased when ordering liquid yeast. High Gravity cannot guarantee the viability of liquid yeast if it fails to work unless it was purchased with a cold pack. You can add it to the order by checking the cold pack box near the bottom of the page before adding the yeast to the cart.
