  • OYL-401 presents ripe strawberry, passion fruit, pear, and stone fruit
  • Emphasizes modern fruity hops with its juicy fruit esters
  • Double pitch size with a minimum of 225 billion cells—twice the size of the standard yeast pitch
  • Proprietary propagation methods generate fresh, metabolically strong yeast cells and optimal biomass
  • Omega Yeast is founded on curiosity and innovation, expertly producing common workhorse varieties and many unique strains

The perfect yeast to emphasize today's modern fruit-forward hops, Sundew will lend notes of ripe strawberry, passion fruit, pear, and stone fruit. Inspired by its parental strain's fruit esters, Omega developed Sundew from a Belgian yeast strain but dropped the phenolic character. Sundew is non-phenolic and incapable of producing the spicy clove flavors that were previously competing with its pure, juicy red-fruit bouquet.

Flocculation: High
Alcohol Tolerance: 12% ABV
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 65-78°F

Please Note: For best results we Always recommend ordering an Ice Pack with your liquid yeast. Ice Packs can be found below in the "You might Also Need" section.

Available only in the US and Canada. While we would love to make these strains available internationally, many countries regulations do not yet allow the sale of organisms developed using modern gene-editing, regardless of the type of modification introduced by the technique. Please feel free to contact us for more information!

Please Note: When choosing an ice pack option beware that the liquid yeast will not arrive cold even when shipped together. Ice packs and insulated mailing options are designed to keep the yeast colder for longer during shipment, but they will not ensure that your yeast arrives cold. We will not replace liquid yeast that arrives warm. During warmer months we strongly recommend you choose dry yeast.

A monster. I fermented strawberry mash with it. I often feared that it would drag me into the barrel. It's like Venom. I ended up with a very nice distillate.

It's a beast
True to its Belgian origins, this is a beast. You'll need a blowoff and some way to control the temp rise. Very attenuative, 84% on my batch. Definitely strawberry notes from the starter, and lots of fruity esters from the primary ferment. Seemed to accentuate hops and downplay malt flavors. That, plus high attenuation means be careful not to overbitter.
Not what I would consider highly flocculent, more of a medium floc. If you want clear beer, you'll need a cold crash and gelatin.Probably a better choice for a hazy beer.

Put it in an IPA.
Put it in a fruity west coast IPA, it made the best beer ever in my 11 years of brewing. Wow! Only problem is that it was gone in 2 weeks. Not sure I'll ever use anything else. Some of these weird new strains have a hard time clearing up, I do whirlfloc and gelatin and this came out nice and clear.
