Want to make a Yeast Starter? Home brewers are always led to believe making a yeast starter is for the advanced brewer. This could not be further from the truth.

West coast ale yeast

One of my favorite strains. Used it in an ipa

bob friedmann
it works

The Omega yeast pack arrived cool and went into the refrigerator. 12 days later it was allowed to warm to room temp, 68 ºF, and swelled over 4 hours. Not a smack pack, it worked fine on warming. Yeast nutrient added to wort, one pack pitched @ 65 ºF to OG of 1.066, the airlock was busy in less than 24 hours. Fermentation still underway.

Slow Starter

This yeast took over 60 hours to begin any action. After it began it ramped up very quickly hitting a final gravity of 1.008 in less than three days. In the end it created a large amount of sediment that was not the easiest to clear.

JOHN Tornese

My basement brewing room is pretty cold now, and this yeast started instant vigorous ferment and finished quick even in the lower temps. It got me to tasting time a week earlier than when I use the dry yeast. Highly recommend.
