how much yeast per ton of grapes?
John Bailey on Aug 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi John, the dosage rate for yeast is 1 gram of yeast per 1 gallon of must. 1 ton of grapes can yield about 160-200 gallons of must. Therefore, you would need 160-200 grams of yeast. For these 5 gram bags, you would need 32-40.

Good yeast for reds
I purchased some of this yeast as a backup option for re-packaged D254 and D80 yeast that I wanted to use for this year's wine. Good thing that I did, because both those re-packaged yeasts were dead and did not activate. RC212 saved the day and I'm using it in a 50/50 split fermentation of a Cabernet with D21.
