4.9 / 5.013 ReviewsNice all around yeastKeep it below 68f. If you are using it in mead do a staggered feeding schedule.October 7, 2012Good yeast for Mead makersI spoke with the owner of Midnight Meadery and he said to use this yeast and keep the fermentation temperature from getting too high. I made a dry mead using this yeast and it came out pretty good.July 11, 2013Good YeastI've used this on a Peach Melomel and a batch of Mead and both batches turned out great. Leaves a nice floral / fruity aroma with a slight residual sweetness.September 5, 2013Good for Dry MeadsThe yeast did quick work of the honey. I racked after a month, then after another month, and aged for a year. The Mead was clear and clean though a little on the dry side. It's inexpensive too.November 7, 2013Good choice for Mead makingRehydrate with GoFerm, and I used some DAP along with the honey and the fermentation was faster than I expected. A month later I racked and aged it for 4 months before bottling. I gave it another 3 months and tasted the mead and it was quite nice.January 7, 2014Ferments quicklyThis yeast has a clean less fruity taste and settles out when done. Using yeast nutrients and adding Nirtrogen in the form of DAP I am usually done in a month, which is very fast for Mead. The lees have settled and I can age in a carboy fro 6 months and bottle it.March 24, 2014Very good yeastThis yeast is excellent for mead. No unsettling smells and ferments fast. Start it right and feed it some nutrients - you will have a bubbling airlock in no time. Beyond the above - it does not give your beverage an odd flavor, and it settles out on it's own. Recommend this to wine and mead makers.May 26, 2014Good Mead YeastGood yeast for Meads, Pyments, and MelomelsApril 16, 2013all I useI use it for grape , blackberry and pear. Stands up good for high sugar content.February 21, 2017Purchased
5 months agoGood yeastI used this on a white grape and found it left me with a semi-dry end product. The final result had a bit more residual carbonation than other yeasts. No funky off-aromas or flavors. Decent yeast.December 15, 2012
