    The attenuation for Omega Yeast Labs' OYL-200 Tropical IPA is actually 85-100% and the Brewersfriend listing on the yeast selector has the attenuation at 48%.

    https://omegayeast.com/yeast/ales/tropical-ipa

    From the site:
    "Tropical IPA is a unique Saccharomyces strain formerly classified as a Brettanomyces strain, that produces delicate, tart, tropical mango and pineapple fruit characteristics with a clean finish. Try it at its higher temperatures to bring out the tropical profile. It’s stubbornly non-flocculent, but worth it.

    This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene, an indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus, and is capable of fermenting dextrins, resulting in very high attenuation.

    This has been fixed!

    We can't enter an attenuation range, so the average of 92.5% was used.

    you can also use a custom attenuation and add your desired % for each recipe

    That is what I did after noticing I wasn’t getting nearly the ABV I should have. I set the custom attenuation at 95%.
