Omega Yeast Labs

Omega Yeast Labs’ standard is to provide breweries with pitchable quantities of fresh, made-to-order pure yeast for a reasonable price. Founder and CEO Lance Shaner received a Ph.D. in microbiology and molecular genetics from the University of Texas – Houston. Lance has 9 years of laboratory experience, including 5 years of original research on the stress response of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (a.k.a. brewer’s yeast). Lance has been an avid homebrewer for 16 years and continues actively homebrewing today. Thus, for most of the strains in our collection, our home brew pitches contain at least 150 billion viable yeast cells at packaging.
