Ripe banana esters (with a hint of pear) make this new, Omega Yeast-original strain a standout for pastry stouts, milkshake IPAs, and other modern ales. Pitch at 68°F (20°C) and let free rise to 72-76°F (21-23°C) for prime banana flavor. Unlike the Hefeweizen strain from which it is derived, Bananza is versatile because it is non-phenolic and therefore incapable of producing clove flavors that would mask its pure banana profile.
Strain Type: Ale
Temperature Range: 64–75° F (18–24° C)
Alcohol Tolerance: 10%
We ship all liquid yeast in a thermal envelope with an ice pack. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and hot temperatures.
