Omega Yeast OYL015 Scottish Ale
This well known and proven strain produces complex, flavorful Scottish style ales. Often used as a "house" strain. Hop character is not muted with this strain.
*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 upgraded my kit to this liquid yeast and had some confusion as the recipe called for removing the liquid yeast three days before brew day. I was able to email and have my question answered. I was told to follow package and remove on brew day three hours before using. It came in an easy open package and I have bubbles in the air lock so it was a success.
Didn’t puff up well during warm up, I’m a little concerned about it’s vitality, we’ll know in a month or so
So far so good. Completely my fault but for some odd reason I didn’t shake it before pitching. Ended up squeezing the yeast out like toothpaste. Was sure it wouldn’t work (no action in airlock so I really had no faith). Well, I just transferred to secondary and it worked like a charm. Can’t mess it up obviously!
Love it for stouts and ipas
I used the Omega Scottish Ale Yeast for an Irish Wee Heavy Red Ale. his was an all-grain brew. I pitched one pack into a 5-gallon batch of OG=1.072, and it fermented to FG=1.012 within 1 week.
A blow-off tube and growler were required to keep this one under control. Very active fermentation after 18 hours.
The beer is in conditioning now, but the un-carbonated beer is quite good. Dry, flavorful, and great mouthfeel like a good Wee Heavy should have. Very happy with this yeast!
