Omega Yeast OYL-006 British Ale I
A proven and popular choice for all British styles. This strain allows both malt and hop character to come through the profile. Highly flocculant and highly attenuative, this strain will exhibit the characteristic clumping found in many highly flocculant strains once it settles out. This is normal. Ferments well down to 64°F.
*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.

I used this yeast in my Sweet Stout all-grain using BIAB. I made a starter and oxygenated my wort...had fermentation in about 7 hours. Beer turned out great...will be doing again using this yeast.
Worked well with starter. I pitched directly for pumpkin spice latte stout kit and it never dropped below 1.024.
Did a starter on this one since I was aiming for 1.06 OG; took more agitation that I anticipated but got going nicely once the vortex was deep
Created a started pitched went straight to the bottom no activity for 72 hours as a matter of fact til looked like the second fermentation clear and clean on top
Maybe was a bad batch. Maybe I did something wrong.
I don't know I have been using dry yeast 04 and 05 and had great results this far. I will stick to dry yeast in future.
I pitched this directly on top of a batch of 1.035 bitter that hadn't started fermenting. The wort had been oxygenated at 1L/min for 1 minute. This yeast took right off and fermented down to 1.007 in 4 days at 67? I let it go a few more and transferred it to some 2.5 gal plastic casks. Firstly this strain gets very clear beer without filtering but it also drops fast so you may need an extra dose to fully attenuate a big beer. Or a properly sized starter. That being said all the hallmarks of a good English strain are here, light ester production and cleaning flavor that lets the malt and hops of even a light bitter show through nicely. 150Bn cell count is cool just watch that if you make a starter you don't overpitch if you are used to a normal 100Bn cell pack.
