    Features: Belgian Melanoindin (Melano) malt. Special germination process. Kilned in a special way at up to 130°C. Melano malt is slowly dried as the temperature is raised, allowing the melanoidins to form as part of the kilning process. Usage: Amber and dark beers, Scottish type and red coloured beers like Scottish ales, amber ales, red ales, and Irish ales. Characteristics: Very aromatic with intense malty flavour. Gives fullness and roundness to the beer colour, improves flavour stability and promotes red colour in your beer. Gives beer fuller body. This specialty variety has been described as “turbo Munich”.

  • Omega Yeast LabsOYL-004West Coast Ale I

    Omega Yeast LabsOYL-004West Coast Ale I

    Popularly the “Chico,” this neutral, highly attenuating, moderately flocculating chart topper is a great house for its reliability, versatility — and lauded place in American craft beer history. It ferments cool, crisp and clean at the low range, with light citrus under 66° F. Great for displays of malts and hops. Also try DIPA Ale (OYL-052) and British Ale I (OYL-006) for hops, or West Coast Ale II (OYL-009) and Scottish Ale (OYL-015) for malts.
