Slow Start Fermentation
This past weekend I brewed Swig of Sunbeams OG 1.074 and used two packs of Omega DIPA Ale. I didn’t want to take the time to to make a yeast starter. It took a couple of days to start fermenting. Typically with a dry yeast the next day the wort is fermenting. Hopefully this batch will turn our great.

Brewing a Heady Topper clone. I knew any yeast I used would need a boost so I made a 2L starter. It was so active within 12 hours that I knew that pitching it the next day would be like throwing a lit match onto a pile of gasoline-soaked fireworks. And indeed the krausen is now rising by the minute! Looking forward to the finished product.

1st try using Omega Yeast
I ordered Omega Yeast when I was unable to order White Labs. After two days, the primary fermenter showed obvious signs of activity and OG readings shows almost no movement. After notifying Northern Brewer about the problem, they sent me White Labs replacements. Now still hoping for decent results.

D.O.A. and did nothing... had to repitch another yeast so I have no idea the true flavor profile.

Love this Yeast
I am a big fan of the Omega DIPA and HotHead Ale yeasts. I made a 5-gallon batch of my own recipe American Strong Ale with the DIPA yeast. I had made a 1L starter, and within 3 hours of pitching, it was fermenting strongly. My OG was 1.075 and within 4 days, the gravity was down to 1.015. Letting it go for another 5 days, any traces of diacetyl were cleaned up and the FG was 1.011.

Currently, I am using only the Omega HotHead and DIPA yeasts in my IPA, DIPA IIPA, and Strong Ale recipes. I have washed and reused both yeasts off primary fermentations with great success. These are very active, strong yeast strains.

Perfect for an Imperial or double IPA
Am going on 12 days of quick starting, healthy fermentation for my Imperial clone recipe. Can't wait for the secondary to be over so I can keg 5 gallons.

I paid for extra postage for it to arrive early due to potential hot weather. Once it arrived I made my usual starter, oxygenated as I always do, and kept the fermenter cool. The yeast seemed to give up after about one week before cleaning up the diacetyl. Lesson learned....it is not worth the time and expense to buy yeast from mail order. I now have 5 gallons of butter popcorn.

My Favorite Yeast
I used a starter on a stir plate prior to pitching and resulted in visible fermentation (bubbles air lock) about 20 minutes after pitching.

This yeast ferments at a consistent and moderate pace. So far I've seen active fermentation last between 7 & 14 days depending on the batch size. I've also been using this for beers with an OG of 1.090 or greater and I love the results.

Beer comes out very clean with nice flavors.

Hophead yeast
Used for a hoppy IPA, yeast got too cold and didn't attenuate fully, however when i bottled (and moved to a warmer place) this yeast came back strong and fermented out the last few points. Great hoppy beer yeast, lots of tropical/stone fruit flavors. Bought again for my Heady clone! Highly recommended!

A bit slow to start
Pitched 2 packs into 10 Gallon batch of oxygenated 1.065 IPA ... slow start, no activity after 24 hours at 65 degrees ... increased temp to 69 degrees then started to ferment. Had to keep above 68 degrees to maintain fermentation. Harvested yeast ... will see if 2nd generation with starter reacts differently.

Can this yeast be used with the one gallon batch size Off the Topper?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, and you should be able to pitch directly into your wort without using a starter. Cheers!
How long can this yeast be refrigerated before use?
A shopper on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Within 3 months of receiving it for best results. If you are using this yeast after 3 months, and you are making a beer with a high OG, you should use a yeast starter.
Where can I find the package date? I don't see a date actually printed on the yeast package and I want to estimate cell count and whatnot.
A shopper on Jun 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting Northern Brewer. I understand you want to know where the manufacturer's date is. It actually is on the package, but it is stamped in right along the top where it is sealed. It is kind of hard to see, but it should be there. Cheers!
