From Escarpment Labs, this is what they had to say about this strain: "This is our first pure bacteria Kveik Ring release. This is Lactobacillus paracasei isolated from Terje Raftevold's Hornindal Kveik. In a sensory experiment, this Lacto strain produced light to moderate acidity along with unique white wine and vanilla aromatics. We think this strain helps showcase all the different things Lacto can do for beer flavour!
Works well in kettle/quick souring. Use in unhopped wort only, this strain is hop sensitive. If co-pitching with yeast, give the Lacto a 24 hour head start."
