Omega Yeast OYL-021, Hefeweizen Ale Now Available + Sasionstein’s Monster & Vermont DIPA

packets_2up_left_600px

A while back, RiteBrew picked up several strains from Omega Yeast Lab’s Line of Homebrew Strains.  Omega Yeast packets include 150 Billion Cells per pack and they have some unique yeast, including Sasionsonstein’s Monster and OYL-052 DIPA Ale - “isolated from a famous double IPA brewed in Vermont”… I take that to mean… Heady Topper.

I noticed tonight that they have now started carrying OYL-021 Hefeweizen Ale.

OYL-021 Description: The most popular German wheat beer strain used worldwide. Produces a balance of banana esters and clove phenolics that can be skewed depending on various conditions – e.g., increased ester production through increasing the fermentation temperature, increasing the wort density, and decreasing the pitch rate or over pitching to reduce or nearly eliminate banana character.

EDIT: The DIPA Strain went out of stock not too long after this post went up.  I notice as of this edit (9/10/14 8 PM Central) that it’s back in stock again.

6 Pint Polypropylene Lab Jars and Closures – $20.92, New Record Low

71EYeJGecoL._SL1500_

This 6 pack of polypropylene lab containers and lids has sold for up to $40.27 in the last month.  In that time it has averaged $36.06.  Several price drops have brought it down to a new record low Amazon price of $20.92.  That figures to $3.49 each.  These can be used up to autoclave temps.

Uses include: Yeast rehydration, yeast washing and slurry storage. Also an easy vessel for making and storing sanitized water.  I use similar containers to rehydrate yeast.  Check out Tip 1 on our Tips Page for more info on that.

New: Omega Yeast – Vermont DIPA Strain, Saisonstein’s Monster & More

packets_2up_left_600px

My deal is finding things.  In an attempt to find things :)… I stumbled across a new set of offerings on Ritebrew’s website.  Omega Yeast Lab’s Line of Homebrew Strains.  The entire company was news to me.  Doing some digging it seems Omega includes 150 Billion Cells per pack and they have some pretty cool sounding strains, including Sasionsonstein’s Monster and OYL-052 DIPA Ale – “isolated from a famous double IPA brewed in Vermont”… I take that to mean… Heady Topper.

EDIT: The DIPA Strain went out of stock not too long after this post went up.  I notice as of this edit (9/10/14 8 PM Central) that it’s back in stock again.
