Yeast Thumb 77
OYL-400

Bananza™ Ale

Ripe banana esters (with a hint of pear) make this new, Omega Yeast-original strain a standout for pastry stouts, milkshake IPAs and other modern ales. Pitch at 68°F (20°C) and let free rise to 72-76°F (21-23°C) for prime banana flavor. Unlike the Hefeweizen strain from which it is derived, Bananza is versatile because it is non-phenolic and therefore incapable of producing clove flavors that would mask its pure banana profile.
