How many gallons of cider, ginger beer or mead will this packet make? What is the estimated average fermentation time? Thanks!
woodworx83 on Feb 27, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We use a packet for 5 gallons of our apple cider. At 65 degrees F it takes about a month. We ferment at 50 and it takes about 4 months. We like the end result with this yeast, and our ciders go about 7.5 - 8% abv with no extra sugar.
I have a RIS, final gravity should be around 1.03 to 1.04. I originally used Wyeast 1084 starter with 2 packs of US-04. OG 1.135. I'm stuck at 1.051, even after adding champagne yeast EC-1118. It didn't drop any points with that. It's been 2 weeks primary and gravity hasn't dropped in 1.5 weeks. Do you think the WLP099 will help at this point? Thanks in advance
Antonio Logan on Aug 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Antonio - That is one big mutha of an RIS. Not sure if this is suitable for adding to the fermenter but may help break down stubborn sugars. You will also likely need a very strong culture to withstand the residual alcohols present. Best of luck!

Great for mead
I've used this yeast for making mead several times. It has never let me down. Clean flavor, finishes my 11-13 percent mead with no problems.

Great yeast. Bad for beer.
The yeast was great. Helped get my gravity to where I wanted. However the resulting beer is awful. Tastes like a skunked hief.

We made a small batch of mead with this yeast and some local raw honey and it was amazing. It stayed super bubbly and kept some of the honey's sweetness and brought out the floral notes without being overly sweet.

Meads and secondaries
I've used this yeast with great results for dry meads. I've found it really lets the honey character come out. I started making 2L starters w/ honey and plenty of yeast nutrient and it knocked months off of my fermentation times.

Also used it to finish up a few high-gravity ales. Brought my imperial stout down from 1.016 to 1.012 in just two weeks.
