Omega Yeast Labs exclusive! Gulo Ale is the latest creation to emerge from the curious minds of the Omega R&D team. The progeny of Irish Ale (OYL-005) and French Saison (OYL-026), this true genetic hybrid is a beast at devouring sugars, which creates a very dry beer without any of the peppery, clove phenolics associated with saisons and Belgian ales. Expect a citrus-forward aroma with hints of peach and a clean finish. Gulo Ale excels in any style where a high level of attenuation is desired without phenolics. Omega recommends using it in an IPA (including a brut IPA), stout, or Bière de Garde. Non-phenolic. Patent Pending! This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene, an indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus, and is capable of fermenting dextrins, resulting in very high attenuation. Each Omega Yeast package contains the optimal amount of yeast needed to ferment 5 gallons of 1.060 OG wort. Certain strains may contain up to 500 billion cells per pack, while others may contain slightly less than 150 billion cells per pack.
