Ripe banana esters (with a hint of pear) make this new, Omega Yeast original a standout for pastry stouts, milkshake IPAs and other modern ales. For prime banana esters, pitch at 68°F (20°C) and let free rise to 72 – 75°F (22 – 24°C). Unlike its parental Hefeweizen strain, Bananza® is versatile because it is non-phenolic and therefore incapable of producing clove flavors that would mask its pure banana profile.

Please note: It is highly recommended that a cold pack be purchased when ordering liquid yeast. High Gravity cannot guarantee the viability of liquid yeast if it fails to work unless it was purchased with a cold pack. You can add it to the order by checking the cold pack box near the bottom of the page before adding the yeast to the cart.
