Question for anyone that's brewed with this yeast. What has your experience been with this? Reason I ask is that I have a standard DIPA recipe that I brew in 10 gallon batches. Our yeast of choice has been US-05 and works great.......beer finishes around 1.002 and no issues (great aromatic and hop presence). Brewed our most recent batch using the Omega Labs DIPA yeast and result is not at all what we were expecting. The flavor profile is similar to a lager and with 1.5 lbs hops total in the beer (incl. 3oz Simcoe / 3oz Citra) in dryhop we are getting very little aromatic and almost no hop character coming through. Everything else in the brewing process was identical to what we have been doing with this recipe......only difference was the yeast. Not picking up anything like Diacetyl just an overall weird flavor. Just curious if anyone you have dealt with has had a similar experience? Don't think we are going to use this strain again. Have used the saison yeast from Omega and that was awesome.
