Omega Yeast Labs

Yeast from Omega Yeast Labs is now available in Europe and the UK!

This is particularly good news for those of us who like to brew Brett beers! They have some interesting Brett blends to try out that were previously unavailable to us over on this side of the pond.

You can now find their yeast at Brew UK and Hopfen und Mehr.

In January I was in the US and bought a few packets of Omega Yeast to try out. I finally got around to using their C2C blend with Brett on Friday.

It was an old pack from October or November, but the starter was very vigorous right away. I made only a single step 1 liter starter and pitched that into 26 liters of wort. The lag time was impressively short, only a couple of hours. And fermentation has been vigorous and smells amazing. I look forward to tasting that beer when it’s done and trying out their other Brett blends.

For you clean beer brewers, they also have clean Sacch. strains.
