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.

Used it for 30 years
I use the yeast in addition to the brewing yeasts when I brew beer that has a larger amount of sugars (over 6 lbs of DME and 5 lbs of honey) along with the usual grains. It cut fermentation time down to 7 days or less and doesn't leave a yeasty taste.

Usually a good yeast, not this time
I have brewed hard cider for years, and have been very happy with this yeast. However, in the past I bought it from another company. This shipment of yeast failed to ferment to apple juice. Perhaps it had expired. Paid a different company to rush ship me a second batch and we’ll see how it works out. If you’re going to buy from this company, ask them to check the expiration date on the packets. Can’t say for sure that’s what happened in my case, but something weird did happen.

Great for cider
Great for cider. Tolorates addional sugar or honey for backsweetening. Really like the flavor profile for cider.
6 gallons of tart apples MT grown in my back yard. Also has 2# homey added.

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.
