Description

  • AC-4 is ideal to produce fresh and crisp cider
  • Intensely fresh aromatic profile (apple, floral) with a crisp mouthfeel enhancing cider structure
  • Fermentis active dry yeast offers reliability, ease-of-use, and consistency to home and professional beverage makers across the world

The best cider yeast for an intensely fresh aromatic profile (apple, floral) with a crisp mouthfeel enhancing cider structure.

Usage:
For sweet and dry ciders even under difficult fermentation conditions.

Technical Characteristics:

  • Excellent settlement strength even with its sensitive to killer phenotype
  • Fast kinetic
  • Broad fermentation temperature spectrum: 10-30°C (50-86°F)
  • Low nitrogen requirements: Ratio YAN**(mg/L)/Sugar(g/L) > 0.7 – 0.8
  • Very good assimilation of fructose
  • Maximum initial SO2 level recommended: 75mg/L
  • Very low malic acid consumption (less than 0.4 g/L)
  • Medium 2-phenylethanol and isoamyl acetate producer. High production of ethyl (fruity) esters

Dosage:

  • 10 to 20 g/hl for first fermentation
  • 30 to 40 g/hl for prise de mousse

Direct inoculation:

  • Pour the yeast on the surface of at least 10 times their weight of must (possibly directly on the top of the tank or during tank filling after clarification).
  • Gently stir to avoid or break clumps.
  • Immediately transfer into the tank via a pumping over with aeration (or homogenize tank volume).

With prior rehydration:

  • Pour the yeast on the surface of 10 times their weight of tap water at room temperature.
  • Gently stir to avoid or break clumps.
  • Wait for 20 minutes and transfer into the tank via a pumping over with aeration.

Great for early season ciders
This is the yeast I use for my early season ciders which tend to have a higher percentage of aromatic apples (Gala, Ginger Gold, Golden Delicious) where I want to retain the nose. Tolerates a lower fermentation temperature (55-60 degrees).
