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.
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.
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.
This is one of the best yeasts I've used. It starts quickly and ferments aggressively. makes wonderful ales.
