Product Details
A blend of a mild Brettanomyces isolate from a Colorado brewery known for its Brett beers and two strains formerly classified as Brettanomyces but since found to be Saccharomyces. This blend produces huge tropical fruit aromas during fermentation that fade somewhat during conditioning. Has a wide temperature range and ferments very dry, leaving little body. Consider adding flaked oats if additional body is desired. This blend will not produce significant “funk” or acid, even with extended aging. The blend pairs well with fruity aroma hops to make a unique pale ale. This is an Omega Yeast proprietary blend you will not find from other labs.

Amazing flavor
We brewed an all-grain batch of NB's Permafrost White IPA and used OY Where da Funk in the primary. Made a starter on the stir plate 72 hours ahead and cold crashed to decant off the cbw starter. Fermented at 71 degrees and dry hopped 3 days after fermentation began. Just pulled our first sample 10 days later and it's fantastic already! Tropical fruity and rich with a hint of tartness. So excited to produce something this amazing.

Do you add this in addition to US-05 or similar yeast or does this stand on it's own?

BEST ANSWER: I’ve personally used this yeast multiple times by itself and never in conjunction with another yeast strain. And I always stepped it up with a starter. Attenuation is higher so it finishes leaving you a dry bright beer. Great yeast in my opinion with very little “funk”.
How long did you wait before bottling and did you take any special precautions? I'm worried about bottling if the Brett is still doing its thing.
A shopper on Dec 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used this on a Kolsch and transferred to secondary after two weeks, and did an additional 2 weeks to clear. The bottles are about right (I might have used about 4 coffee scoop measures of sugar; about 40 grams or 1.2 oz, if that makes any difference) and have been completed and without any excess pressure, having been finished for about 5 months now. Nothing out of the ordinary in other words, and I preferred this to my prior batch using kolsch yeast, however I did take extra steps to ensure full boil and cold crash with ice to clear it, which allowed the yeast to dominate the flavor profile.
