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.

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!!!
