Perfect Review by jeff

I use this for making apfelwine, and it always comes out perfect. Dry and crisp like it should be, plus for such short money, its a no brainer!

Nice Dry Product Review by gaiawolf

We used this yeast with a concord grape wine and an apple wine. Both have turned out pretty good, a bit too dry for my significant other though. I enjoy them both. Active yeast started to bubble in the starter within a couple of hours, I am happy with this product.

Berry fines Review by Anthony

I've had good luck with this yeast when making berry wines. I get full attenuation and the wine is good. It may smell a little while fermenting, but the final wine has no hint of off flavors.

Worked to make Edwort's Apfelwein. Super easy and tasty. Chugged right along and made a clear wine.

I've been using Montrachet in my blueberry wine and performs well. The next batch ill be using cote de blanc to try new yeasts and experiment a bit. All and all for under a dollar a pack its an outstanding yeast.

Good yeast for fruit wine Review by Sean

I use this yeast for fruit wines. I've made Raspberry and Blackberry wines that were pretty good. If it gets stuck I add in some energizer and that seems to help

Worked Great! Review by Loonypat

Started out with two 1-gallong batches of wine. One Strawberry and one Blackberry. We cracked open bottles each last weekend (started in November). They were a big hit. I used the Montrachet yeast in both. I prefer the Blackberry and am getting ready to make a larger batch using this yeast. Worked quite well.

Lifesaver Review by Randy

Product Rating:

I used this as a last attempt to get a Pinto Noir kit to ferment. I had pitched EC-1118 twice to no avail. Made a starter with this adding a bit of must every 30 minutes and added to the bucket. Less than 24 hours later was chugging along. Gravity down to 1.050 in about 3 days. Was a lifesaver for me.

Great with the Blackberries Review by Loonypat

I have finished a batch of Blackberry wine that is fabulous - this yeast worked really well for the fruit wine.

Great yeast. Used it for apfelwein and it fermented great. The lock was full of bubbles within the first few hours. Good product and very good price.
