Omega Yeast OYL-016 British Ale VIII
A time-honored ESB strain best suited for all English-style ales including milds, bitters, porters, and English style stouts. Ales produced with this strain tend to be fruity, increasingly so with higher fermentation temperatures of 70-74°F. A thorough diacetyl rest is recommended after fermentation is complete. This yeast will leave a beer very clear, and will leave some residual sweetness.
*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.
|Yeast Disclaimer||We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts. It is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.|

Omega Yeast 016 British Ale VIII
This took out a stout I had 1.060 to 1.07 in 5 days!!
All I did was a yeast starter 24 hours before. It crushed this beer. I will admit I was worried. It took 24 hours to really get a krausen. But it tore right through it.
Good fruity notes. I cranked it up to 70 degrees to get them. I let it sit for 3.5 weeks. Tastes great!
Would definitely recommend this over a dry yeast. The difference in my beer was very noticeable.
Note: yeast was fairly warm when it arrived, not fault of NB or the manufacturer, but still functioned beautifully.
My pack was blown up like a football when recieved, no problem I just poked a small pin in corner then pitched it, was going strong in no time. omega has a video on some strains that do this. don't panic!!
