OYL-400 Bananza Ale is full of ripe banana esters (with a hint of pear) making this Omega Yeast original a standout for pastry stouts, milkshake IPAs and other modern ales. For prime banana esters, pitch at 20°C and let free rise to 22 – 24°C. Unlike its parental Hefeweizen strain, Bananza is versatile because it is non-phenolic and therefore incapable of producing clove flavours that would mask its pure banana profile.
Omega Yeast's metabolically healthy cells produce vigorous fermentation and consistent results for home brewers and probrewers alike. Each homebrew pack (150ml) is packed with 225b cells.
