Omega Yeast OYL500 Saisonstein Monster
The first in our line of hybrid strains. Saisonstein Monster is a genetic hybrid resulting from the mating of strains OYL026 and OYL027, created by and available exclusively from Omega Yeast. You will not find this strain anywhere else. Less phenolic and more fruit character than 026. Exhibits some of the bubble gum character of 027.
*NOTE:*During summer months, we include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeast orders. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and particularly hot temperatures. For this reason, we recommend ordering dry yeast during summer months.

Used w/ the Lemondrop Saison extract kit. Made a simple 1/2gal starter the night before. Original gravity @ 1.077. Final gravity @ 1.003. Really the star of the show. Great flavor, great attenuation, highly recommend!
Worked well. Good flavor but not much carbonation.
Taste great, mild yeast flavor but great saison flavor.
I used this as the recommended liquid yeast (I always prefer liquid yeasts and a starter over dry yeasts), in Northern's Blood Orange Saison whole grain kit. The results we're spectacularly good. A great Belgian, and a Good Recipe. Every one I've given a sample too, likes it.
The yeast is so so. It does not live up to the hype.
