Put a spin on lager brewing with Lunar Crush®, Omega Yeast's distinctively tropical Thiolized® lager strain. Lunar Crush biotransforms thiol precursors from malt, hops, and grape-derived products for a new wave of passion fruit, guava, and New Zealand Sauvignon blanc fruitiness. This isn't your typical lager yeast - Lunar Crush is the perfect companion for complex, hop-forward styles or even creating something entirely new by simplifying your recipe for the boldest thiol expression.
Lunar Crush is a lager strain, so make sure to treat it as such - use a pitch rate appropriate for your fermentation temperature, your best yeast management practices, and allow some additional time for lagering. If you're looking for the boldest thiol expression, simplify your recipe and hopping rates. We find the most thiol forward recipes are typically very simple, especially on the cold side. Get creative. Have fun.
Each pack now contains 150 mL of yeast slurry to enhance the brewer's experience!

ICE PACK INCLUDED
We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!
