    Is #1 a ne ipa? Lots of people are using the kviek strains for those, so I'd go with that if it is a ne ipa.

    Yep- The last NEIPA i brewed I used the Kveik strain. It made for a great beer.
    I'll probably go back with the Kveik for #1 and use the Conan (OYL052) for #2.

    It likes to ferment hot too, like 30C. I actually have to put a heat band on my fermenter.
