The Omega Yeast research and development team has been busy over the past year coming up with new strains to keep homebrewers happy. We will be featuring one of their latest creations: Sundew Ale (OYL-400)
Sundew Ale (OYL-401)
Sundew has luscious strawberry, passion fruit and stone fruit esters, which combine to support desirable notes in modern fruity hops. Sundew sets a great foundation for hoppy styles like juicy pale ales, west coast IPAs or hazy IPAs, or its jammy profile can be paired with more malt forward stouts, milds and brown ales. Think versatile like West Coast Ale I (OYL-004), but jammier.
