Omega Yeast OYL-113 Mexican Lager
Used by one of the most popular beers from Mexico, this strain produces clean lager beer, with a crisp refreshing finish. Good for Mexican style light lagers, dark lagers, and other tropical styles traditionally fermented with lager strains. A versatile lager yeast and a strong fermenter.
*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.

A very nice lagering yeast. Made a nice mexican lager with this. Fermented around 55F. Clean finish.
Use this in a Bock clone. Very clean, fantastic attenuation.
Great product. My mistake and didn’t do a starter. Will next time.
A longtime Wyeast user, I gave Omega a try last year. Have produced several batches with the Mexican yeast. Very smooth and clean. What's surprised me the most is the consistency across batches. I've had some that took forever to begin fermentation and others that fired up immediately but the quality and taste have been uniformly good. With my other varieties (non Omega) there's always lots a variability across batches. Friends and family have identified this as their favorite. Planning to try other yeasts now.
