Description

Good flocculation and a neutral flavor and aroma. This is a strain that is popular because of its strong fermentation characteristics and lack of problems. Can be used in a wide range of wines including most red wines, sparkling wines and late harvest version where the alcohol tolerance is a perfect fit. Ferments from 45 to 95 degrees with an alcohol tolerance of 18%. Not a great choice for wine that will be seeing a malo-lactic fermentation as EC-1118 naturally produces higher levels of SO2 which can inhibit malo-lactic fermentations.

Great yeast that produces excellent fermentation consistently. My go to yeast for red wines where I want a 13-14% ABV with natural grape flavors. Merlot, Cabernet, Nebbiolo, etc.

There can only be one
If you want a yeast to make mead, and you want it potent, this is the yeast. Very strong, and helps prevent rogue yeasts from popping up. After all is said, it will allow me to still backsweeten perfectly.
