This sounds fun https://omegayeast.c...cing-star-party

 

 

Star Party is designed to enhance thiol biotransformation while retaining the clean fermentation profile and clarity of its parental strain, West Coast Ale I (OYL-004). This latest Thiolized strain will add a big burst of thiols that’s perfect for redefining classic styles, juicing up a West Coast IPA, or creating a unique style that highlights the thiol potential of regional hops and malt.

They have left the old dogs in the past... Just my opinion of course.

I used Jovaru last week and I'm ready to use Gulo. Both have been great in past. I might revisit Cosmic Punch and hit the mash hops way harder next time.

I received 2 packs of Omega today. Used the Hornindal for a Tropical DIPA today. Also got a "Bananza". Yeah, banana is not for everyone but I think I'll like it. Thinking of a BIG banana Weizen beer - BananaRama!

What's the advantage of getting those types of flavors through the yeast rather than hops?

Depth of flavor and it will also accentuate the hops. I would say that you could use less hops to get the same flavor profile.

Yeah, I think you can think of it like cooking where you try to enhance a food with similar tastes. Like soy sauce and mushrooms adding more meaty flavors to meat.

Less hops? Blasphemy! :P

I’m going to be playing with this one soon. We use 001 as a workhorse and have recently been using Cosmic Punch with great success. I have a feeling we will switch from White Labs to Omega for everything.

I really want to try Bonanza too. I’ve had some beers with it that have been killer. Think imperial stout….

Hmmm. Imperial Stout, eh? Maybe I'll try out my Bananza in my Baltic Porter recipe.

Made a Banana Porter with Bananza yeast on Saturday. I used the grain bill from my Baltic Porter. I forgot to add the 1.25# of brown sugar but no biggie. Anyway, OG of 1.077, I used a SNS starter and it took off. It's down to 1.022 already and blowing off massive Nanner esters.

Just saw that Star Party is now available in Homebrewing packs. I'll definitely try it out. Dogfish makes a Star Party WCIPA.

I'm a bit disappointed in that my FG only made it to 1.020. Was hoping for 1.015-ish.

Drinking a pint of this right now. The beer is fine but NOT what I expected. Even though it was blowing off massive banana esters while fermenting, banana is now barely detectable.

Spitballing here but I think pitch rate, temperature, and O2 are going to play a big part in how this expresses.


Also, in regard to these thiolized yeasts work: I haven’t used Star Party yet, but the Cosmic Punch seems to greatly extend how long the hops character stays fresh in the final beer. It’s pretty remarkable.
