Innovation in hybrid yeast strains


Expanding their ever-evolving collection of unique and innovative yeast strains for brewers, Omega Yeast released a new hybrid yeast, Gulo™ Ale. This new tool was created by the company’s Research and Development team by mating two strains in the Omega catalog, the Irish Ale (OYL-005) and the French Saison (OYL-026).
