Lars is responsible for the popularizing this workhorse yeast in the home and craft brewing world. This article from Good Beer Hunting does an excellent job telling the story about how Lars documented and popularized Kveik yeast.

Brewing Garage Sale

We've all collected extra brewing equipment over the years, sometimes for a one-off brew and other times from just upgrading. Bring your extra brewing gear to the meeting and pick your price. We'll have a For Sale table with your name and asking price attached. For those looking to expand or upgrade, bring cash or have your Paypal at the ready!
