Cosmic Punch OYL-402
Omega Yeast's OYL-402 Cosmic Punch is the first strain released as a part of a A Thiolized™ series from the R&D team over at Omega Yeast Labs. The Thiolized process enhances a yeast's natural ability to biotransform compounds found in malt and hops to unleash thiols that evoke grapefruit, passionfruit, and guava aromas - reminiscent of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and Southern Hemisphere Hops.
The parental strain is British V (OYL-011) - a staple for making hazy NEIPAs - but it is not capable of producing significantly enhanced tropical aromatics while maintaining the well-known characteristics of the original strain. This means you can pack even more desirable aromas into each pint.
You could even try with mash hopping or wine grape-derived products to push even more thiols.
Optimal Temperature Range: 64-75F
Alcohol Tolerance: 10%
