EC1118 Dry Wine Yeast

EC1118 Dry Wine Yeast

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

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 malolactic fermentation as EC-1118 naturally produces higher levels of SO2 which can inhibit malo-lactic fermentations.

Nice yeast
According to the Lalvin technical data, this yeast has low nutrient needs and higher alcohol tolerance. The best criteria for home winemakers. I have won multiple awards using this yeast to make white wines.
