Omega Yeast OYL-004 West Coast Ale I

$ 10.99

Popularly called “Chico,” West Coast Ale I is a reliable, versatile and popular neutral foundation for displays of malts and hops. Often used as a house strain, it is highly attenuative and moderately flocculent. And it ferments crisp and clean with light citrus notes under 66° F (19° C). Also try DIPA (OYL-052) or British I (OYL-006) to highlight hops more, or West Coast II (OYL-009) and Scottish...

Omega Yeast OYL-005 Irish Ale

$ 10.99 (Sold Out)

Ireland’s storied stout is thought to be balanced by this dry, crisp, lightly fruity, versatile and powerful strain. The Irish Ale strain is a good fermenter with reliable, average flocculation and a hint of fruit at the lowest recommended temperatures, which increases in complexity at higher temperatures (64° F/18° C and higher). Some diacetyl possible. Successful in dark and high gravity beers....

Omega Yeast OYL-006 British Ale I

$ 10.99 (Sold Out)

A productive, brewer-friendly top cropper attributed to a historic London brewery whose lab once hosted Louis Pasteur, British Ale I drops fast and clear, and is clean and crisp at low temperatures with heightened esters and a lightly tart, dry finish at the upper range. Try also British Ale II (OYL-007) for less attenuation and enhanced malts or British VIII (OYL-016). Details Flocculation: Med -...

Omega Yeast OYL-011 British Ale V

$ 10.99

A good top cropper thought to be from a famous Manchester bitters maker. It is paired popularly (aside from with English styles) with the signature huge fruity hop flavor and aroma of the hot-topic New England IPA; this strain, with more residual sweetness, and DIPA (OYL-052), with slightly less, are both popular choices. Details Flocculation: High Attenuation: 71 - 75% Temperature Range:...

Omega Yeast OYL-015 Scottish Ale

$ 10.99 (Sold Out)

Thought to originate from the famous Scottish brewer, the Scottish Ale strain is a flocculent, versatile, reliable house strain that produces neutral to complex and malty profiles in its fairly wide temperature range. Hop character is not muted by this strain. Bring out more esters in higher fermentation temperatures. It flocculates better than West Coast Ale I (OYL-004). Details Flocculation: High...

Omega Yeast OYL-016 British Ale VIII

$ 10.99

A ridiculously thorough flocculator thought to be from a highly regarded English ESB, British Ale VIII has unique fruitiness and noticeable finishing sweetness. It drops out quickly and completely. It is easy to crop, but needs a diacetyl rest. To enhance the fruit, ferment at the recommended temperature ceiling. Details Flocculation: Very high Attenuation: 67-71% Temperature Range: 64–72° F (18–22° C) Alcohol...

Omega Yeast OYL-021 Hefeweizen Ale I

$ 10.99

A classic German wheat strain, it’s a cloudy, big top cropper. Presenting banana and clove, the esters turn up with increased temps, wort density and decreased pitch rate, or stay muted at lower temps where clove stands out. Over-pitching can lessen the banana. Sulfur conditions out. See also Belgian Ale A (OYL-024) for an alternate complexity. Details Flocculation: Low Attenuation: 73 - 77% Temperature...

Omega Yeast OYL-030 Wit

$ 10.99 (Sold Out)

Enthusiastically top cropping, this essential Wit yeast is distinctive for the popular, refreshing, easy-drinking summer style. Spicy phenols carry the flavoring, while at the same time being supported—but not overshadowed—by good ester character. Lightly tart and dry. Details Flocculation: Medium Attenuation: 72 - 76% Temperature Range: 62–75° F (17–24° C) Alcohol Tolerance: 11 - 12% ABV

Borne from an exclusive partnership with the famed Jovaru™ Brewery’s “queen of Lithuanian farmhouse beer,” this unique yeast complements farmhouse beers with citrusy esters and restrained phenols.

This strain may have the ability to...

Omega Yeast OYL-044 Kolsch II

$ 10.99

The Kolsch II strain is warmer fermenting than Kolsch I, flocculates much better and clears more quickly. Though a little easier to manage, they are similar in that they are both lager-like ale strains that are lightly fruity, crisp and clean, accentuating of hop flavors, and with a hint of sulfur that disappears with age. Details Flocculation: Medium Attenuation: 72 - 78%...

Omega Yeast OYL-052 DIPA Ale

$ 10.99

A strong fermenter popularly referred to as the “Conan.” This strain is thought to originate from an often-hunted, soaringly-rated Vermont beer. Its peach, apricot, and pineapple notes are steroids for hops, complementing in particular modern fruity hop profiles, like in the hot-topic New England IPA. May produce some diacetyl.   Details Flocculation: Medium - Low Attenuation: 72 - 80% Temperature Range: 65-72°...

Omega Yeast OYL-057 HotHead™ Kveik

$ 10.99 (Sold Out)

A highly flocculent Norwegian Kveik strain with an astoundingly wide temperature range featuring little change in flavor across the range.

Temperature control is unnecessary with this strain.   Details Flocculation: Medium - Low Attenuation: 75 - 85% Temperature Range: 62-98° F...

Omega Yeast OYL-061 Voss Kveik

$ 10.99

A traditional Norwegian farmhouse strain from the Gjernes farmhouse, its character changes little over its broad temperature range, like HotHead™ (OYL-057), but with orange citrus notes. It is non-phenolic and pairs well with citrusy, fruity hops. Hothead™ is happy anywhere in its temperature range, but ferment this one warm to increase its relatively low fermentation speed. Details Flocculation: Medium Attenuation: 75 -...
