Omega Yeast OYL-111 German Bock
This yeast produces a beer that is well balanced between malt and hop character. This profile makes it well suited for Bocks, Doppelbocks, and Oktoberfest style beers where malt flavors should be prominent. Also good for Helles style lager beer.
*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.
|Yeast Disclaimer||We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts. It is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.|

I used this for the first time brewing a Munich Dark lager and am pleased with the results so far. The beer is lagering so I don't have a final product to report on. I used a yeast starter, fermentation began within 24 hours of pitching the yeast. Initial fermentation temperature was 53 degrees, that dropped to 48 within a couple days (I have a cellar space that is not heated). Fermentation continued the entire time, slowing at 48 degrees. I moved the fermenter where it reached a steady 59 degrees, fermentation picked up again and continued for another 48 hours. Attenuation was 74%.
This yeast gave a robust performance through these temperature ranges. I have another couple of weeks before the final product is ready, but I would not hesitate to use Omega 111 again.
Took about 10 hours after pitching to begin activity but fermentation was lively after that.
Took off quick with a 3L starter. Took my Doppel Bock from 1.088 down to 1.010!
