Omega's lab has moved into a new space. At the beginning of this year, we grabbed tanks, equipment, supplies and staff and forklifted our operations down the street to a bigger space on Montrose Ave. on the northwest side of Chicago. In the next few months, the signage and paint will go up on the exterior and we can’t wait to show you the progress!

Probrewers

Probrewers

We’re here to make it easy to focus on brewing. Pro pitches are made-to-order, yielding the freshest, healthiest yeast at the height of its performance. Brewers order by pitch rate and batch size for precise counts, transparent pricing and overall consistency. Any strain, in any quantity, at any time of year is custom propped fresh for your brew in 7-10 days. We carry all the strains you’re used to working with and the innovative strains you’d like to.

“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.”

Daniel, Le Castor Brewing Co., Rigaud, QC, Canada
