The RC-212 strain comes from the Burgundy region of France, and is a moderately quick, low foaming yeast. It achieves full flavor extraction in red wines. This yeast strain stabilizes color and tannin throughout fermentation and aging. An emphasis on ripe berry, peppery/spicy and fruit aromas is noted. This is the best strain to use in Pinot Noir or other full bodied red wines.

Is wine yeast is different than bakery ( Bread ) yeast
M S on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is! While bread yeast will ferment some sugars, it is not very alcohol tolerant, and will not fully complete the fermentation. It also does not clear out well, so you may end up with a low-alcohol, cloudy beverage. It would also be very likely to have some off-flavors from the stress of the alcohol in the mixture. We highly recommend using real wine yeast! It's often the least expensive component in a batch of wine. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
