Testimonial el castor

The Omega lacto blend (OYL-605) worked exactly as advertised, and sourced 20 bbl’s of un-hopped wort overnight to a pH of 3.4. We’re very happy with the results, and will be using it again.

Testimonial singlespeed

Not only is Omega at the forefront of innovation in yeast, but Lance, Mark, and team are extremely dedicated to providing customer service of the utmost quality. There seems to be a strong relationship between trends in craft beer and new products coming from Omega, be it with the use of their Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces, or Lactobacillus strains.

Austin Myers, Single Speed Brewing Co., Waterloo, IA
Testimonial perennial

Omega has become a force in yeast supply for the craft brewing industry. Their offering reflects the needs of brewers in these dynamic and creative times. Also, when it comes to customer service, Lance and his team feel more like a partner than merely a yeast supplier.
