Excellent yeast for Irish Red Ale
I used the Omega Scottish Ale Yeast for an Irish Wee Heavy Red Ale. his was an all-grain brew. I pitched one pack into a 5-gallon batch of OG=1.072, and it fermented to FG=1.012 within 1 week.

A blow-off tube and growler were required to keep this one under control. Very active fermentation after 18 hours.

The beer is in conditioning now, but the un-carbonated beer is quite good. Dry, flavorful, and great mouthfeel like a good Wee Heavy should have. Very happy with this yeast!

Is a starter required for this? Making the Bourbon Barrel Porter extract kit this weekend but new to brewing.
John M on Apr 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hey John, I made that exact kit with this yeast. What i did was used an old 1 gallon carboy (from the starter kit) and used some malt that is provided with the kit. Let the yeast sit for almost a day to get good and active, then pitch with the wort (half measure roughly) then allow that to sit for a day or two and pitch in with the wort from the main batch. Turned out great! *note* allow a little longer to condition, makes it much more enjoyable. Happy Brewing!
How long does it typically take to start fermentation? I pitched the yeast in my bourbon porter yesterday at 4:30pm. It is now 9:30am and I dont see a hint of activity! This is my first time using Omega and I'm getting the feeling I wasted a lot of time and money...

BEST ANSWER: I had that same batch, are you using a yeast starter? I used a starter and half a day later I had vigorous activity. I'd give the two days before getting worried. Also did you make sure the temperatures were in range? I hope this helps
