Bold Red Wine / High Alcohol Yeast - Wyeast 4946

SKU: Y4946

Wyeast 4946 is ideal on the production of zinfandel, pinot noir and syrah.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts. It is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.



Formally knows as Wyeast 4946 Zinfandel, this yeast strain has dominating, strong fermentation characteristics. Alcohol tolerant to 18% (v/v). Ideal for Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah, or any high sugar must. Good choice for restarting stuck fermentations.
