Omega Yeast OYL-210 Brett Blend #1: Where Da Funk?
OLY-210 is a blend of a mild Brettanomyces isolate from a Colorado brewery known for its Brett beers and two strains formerly classified as Brettanomyces but since found to be Saccharomyces. This blend produces huge tropical fruit aromas during fermentation that fade somewhat during conditioning. Has a wide temperature range and ferments very dry, leaving little body. Consider adding flaked oats if additional body is desired. This blend will not produce significant “funk” or acid, even with extended aging. The blend pairs well with fruity aroma hops to make a unique pale ale.
Flocculation: Very Low
Optimum Ferm Temp: 68-80°F - 20-26.5°C
