Wide temperature range yeast

Recommended Posts

Ran across this yeast on one of my suppliers sites this morning. It's a liquid yeast and assuming it's for a 5 gallon batch. Not cheap at 8.95 but for some of you that live in hot south or southwest states and fight some temp control........
HotHead Ale Yeast Omega OYL-057
Omega Yeast Labs HotHead Ale OYL-057

A highly flocculent Norwegian ale strain with an astoundingly wide temperature range featuring little change in flavor across the range. Clean enough for both American and English styles, it has a unique honey-like aroma with over-ripe mango. Complementary to modern fruity hops. Temperature control is unnecessary with this strain.

  • Flocculation: Medium High
  • Attenuation: 75-85%
  • Temperature Range: 62-98 F
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 11% ABV

$ 8.95 is not cheap but if you harvest your yeast and reuse it, the price per batch can be fairly cheap.

@Cato @Creeps McLane I have a can of nw ipa and I think I’m gonna try the Santa Rita Pale Ale recipe that @Shrike said was good. It has been tough temp controlling now that it’s hot. Think I’m gonna try that hothead yeast on a batch and see how it turns out. I have a lager in a cooler in my 90-100 degree garage right now. 4 frozen bottles every 24 hrs. It’s an RTIC cooler so it holds good temp but still....wanna try an omega batch and just keep it in a closet somewhere, no cooler, and not worry about temps.

My god yes! I would say this hot head yeast can handle that. I find it hard to believe any yeast can go over 80 without crazy esters but apparently this one can. Let me know what you ferment at and how it tastes!

Seconded.  Santa Rita is a tasty brew.  I'm curious to read about the results with the hothead yeast.

On my to brew list is a beer with some kveik yeast that I’m gonna ferment possibly around 90 degrees and hope I get some interesting esters. I’ll keep you posted.
