7 months agoNot my favorite for mead.Not for stone fruit still meads in my opinion. Hard to balance honey and fruit flavors while having a very distinguishable white wine flavor. Fermented >18%May 15, 2018Purchased
1 year agoOne of my "go to" yeastsNice dry yeast for white wines. I use this for my apple cider wine along with yeast nutrient. Smooth finish, nice mouth feel, clean taste, Ferments out fully dry, clears well, no residual sediments after bottling.December 2, 2014Money SaverI used nutrients and It fermented a nice Pinot Grigio. Cleared well and the wine came out medium bodied._x000D_April 1, 2014Mead yeastI use it for Mead making along with adding DAP at different times during the first 5 days. Keep teh temperature at 65 for the first week. This makes for a much faster maturing Mead thats drinkable in 4 months.December 16, 2013makes a nice meadused this in a couple10 lb meads and worked very well. the dry yeasts are just too easy; take them out of the fridge and pour them in. I also used some yeast nutrient at the end of the short boil to give the yeast some help as the honey doesn't inherently have many nutrients of its ownOctober 18, 2013a good wine yeastI also used nutrients as this is a demanding yeast. While fermenting it may give off strange smells, but the final wine had none of that. It clears well and forms a compact yeast mass tahst easy to rack off of. Nice clean taste in the end.August 4, 2013Use with ChardonnaysThis is a PERFE.T yeast for Chardonnays. The fermenting is quick, and forms compact lees at the end of fermentation for crisper racking._x000D__x000D_If you happen to do malolactic fermentation in your chardonnay, this is the only yeast you should useMay 21, 2013Makes Great Strawberry WineI have used this stuff for strawberry wine and it turned out great. Very low foaming even with mesh bag containing strawberries and stirring multiple times per day. As with all Lalvin products quality is second to none.March 11, 2013Made a good Pinot GrigioI am happy with how this performed in my Pinot Grigio. I made sure to use nutrients, since this yeast really needs them. Overall it fermented well, giving me a medium bodied float smelling wine. It also cleared well. There are some of smells from the air lock at first, but by the time the wine is ready, those aromas and tastes are gone.January 14, 2013
