Omega Yeast is a great local yeast company a few blocks from our shop. The yeast is in high demand and not always in stock. We get the yeast fresh from them every few days based on demand. Please place an order and if we don't have it in stock we can usually get it and ship the next day for orders placed before 4pm CST. If it will take longer than a day we will let you know.
Borne from an exclusive partnership with the famed Jovaru Brewery’s “queen of Lithuanian farmhouse beer,” this unique yeast complements farmhouse beers with citrusy esters and restrained phenols. The strain produces a character of lemon pith, black pepper, and a soft mouthfeel. I sveikata!
