Omega Yeast OYL004 West Coast Ale I
Clean, crisp flavor characteristics with low fruitiness and mild ester production. A very versatile yeast for styles that desire dominant malt and hop character. This proven performer from California has become a very popular "house" strain. May yield citrus notes with cooler 60-66°F fermentations. Use for pale ales, IPA, cream ales, or other american styles.
*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.
This yeast worked reliably.
Bottling it today, going to wash the yeast. Wish me luck!
We purchased 4 different brewing kits, with the intent to have a brewing party the second Saturday of March. Given the Covid shutdown, that didn't happen, and the ingredients, stored in a Southern California basement are not faring well. Not the suppliers' fault... Just bad timing. We did 2 batches last weekend.
