Probably the most well known strain for producing classic stouts, this is a popular choice for many dark beers and high gravity beers. Beers fermented in the lower temperature range produce a dry, crisp profile with subtle fruitiness. Fruit and complex esters will increase when fermentation temperatures are above 64°F.

Erin go brew ha ha
I got great numbers on the brew (brew day was 1/30/18), 74% efficiency and 15.4 Brix, and the Irish ale yeast took off great. Ten days later I transferred to the secondary, and a mild fermentation took off again. On bottling day I did a crash chill but it was still kinda lively. I measured 6.5% ABV, and can't wait for St. Pat's Day to check it out!
p.s. I quit doing secondary for a long time because it was just another contamination opportunity, but this didn't look like that. The gravity kept dropping, the flavor was marvelous (I was very impressed with the grains I got from you in the same order.) So I'm not sure why it wouldn't settle down, but we'll see.
Irish ale in the Grainfather on the patio - it's a brewtiful day!

Easy to use
Have used this a couple times already now and I've really enjoyed the high concentration of yeast and the high attenuation achieved using Omega Yeast. Past two experiences with the Irish red have been positive and resulted in delicious beers with no unpleasant aftertastes or stalling (for high OG)

Nice results from this yeast
Brewed a dry Irish stout with outstanding results. Even though they report a high yeast count, I used a starter. I felt like the strength of the yeast and resulting fermentation really contributed to the complexity of my final beer.

does this bag of yeast puff up like wyeast after removing from the fridge?
Dan L on Feb 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I brewed from the pack with it yesterday. Temp in brew house was about 68 and I had the pack out at least 3 hours before I pitched. There was some puff up to the pack but not as much as a wyeast pack.
