West Coast Ale I + (OYL-430) is tailored to produce very low levels of esters and phenolics, ensuring minimal yeast-derived flavors and aromas. This makes it ideal for IPAs, double IPAs, and other hop-dominant beers where clarity and hop character are paramount. The strain's higher alcohol tolerance and slightly higher attenuation contribute to a dry, crisp finish that accentuates hop bitterness and aroma.

As part of Omega Yeast's DKO (Diacetyl Knock Out) line, West Coast Ale I + (OYL-430) offers advanced performance by reducing diacetyl production, ensuring a clean and crisp final product. Whether you are crafting a traditional West Coast IPA, a potent double IPA, or any hop-focused brew, this yeast provides the enhanced performance needed to deliver exceptional clarity, robust hop expression, and a clean, crisp finish that defines the style.
