Excellent results on high brix grapes
With a late harvest from my zinfandel vineyard in Sonoma, I had sugar levels that were a concern, 26.25 Brix. This yeast worked well and the flavor profile was excellent

I used Wyeasy 4946 to get a “stuck” mixture get movin again. Its working overtime and it looks like I’m getting 6 gallons of wine instead of compost fodder. Thank you MIDWEST!!!
