Omega Yeast Belgian Ale W OYL028 (2 pack)
A truly authentic strain for brewing Belgian dubbel or Belgian tripel. This strain produces a nice balance of complex fruity esters and phenolics, making it desirable for use in other Belgian style ales as well. A flocculent, true top cropping yeast (additional headspace is recommended), that will work over a broad temperature range. Makes a great Belgian style "house" strain. More temperature tolerant than some Belgian strains, this yeast can produce great results with a gradual temperature ramp over the first week of fermentation.
Used it to brew the Northy Belgian Quad. Made a 1.5 L Starter out of it. It did a great job and made a great tasting strong Belgian ale. The yeast is over the top. I don’t quite understand it, but had to put a blow off tube on fermenter multiple times. Over three nights I thought it was done rising but it would come back around nighttime and blow out the top. So keep the blowoff tube on. It will come out the top. But that is kind of fun to see assuming you don’t make a mess or get an infection.
Easy to use. No off flavors. Follow directions.
Great for Tripels! High alcohol tolerance. Great for any belgian strong golden ale.
Used in my Belgian Triple, did not start off very strong but fermentation lasted almost 14 days and hit the gravity I was looking for.
