Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 2 answerswhat yeast is used for shiraz?BEST ANSWER: Although undue, as I recall, the kit provides EC1118 which is fine and very dependably ferments to dry. However, I used Syrah yeast from Enoferm which I buy from More Winemaking. I think it brings out a little more of the unique variatial characteristics. I have not tried it with Shiraz/Syrah but suspect the Red Star Premier Rouge would work as well.The directions state to use a solid bung rather then an airlock during secondary fermentation? It is the first kit I have made that has this, can a airlock be used with acceptable results?BEST ANSWER: You should use an airlock for secondary fermentation, step 2. You use a solid bung only after the specific gravity is 0.998 or lower and after completing the instructions for stabilizing and clearing, step 3. The ongoing fermentation during secondary will pop the solid bung out as the yeast continue to consume the remaining sugar, producing carbon dioxide.
