K1V-1116 is a vigorously fermenting, dominant strain that will overcome wild yeast, and ferment well in a must that is low in nutrients. Brings out the freshness of white grape varieties, especially Sauvignon Blanc.

The service by Midwest is always excellent and the lalvin is a great yeast perfect for a growing and young company like ours.
I have tried other yeasts and come back to this yeast because it works deliciously with most bases and delivers consistent results.
Fruit wine went very fast with this yeast, complete fermentation in 5 days... from 1.090 to 0.990. Really active, with ambient temps at 75, bucket got to 80.
The banana mead I am working on is not finished, actually, barely started, and as for this yeasts ability to ferment fast, it does it. One note that I have, which may be due to the bananas and not the yeast, is that it actually produced a whole lot of foam. So much foam, in fact, that it overflowed my airlock on the first night. I would recommend leaving plenty of headspace during primary when using this yeast in case of a violent foamy fermentation that I'm experiencing.
My apple pie wine came out wonderful with this and the Lalvin K1V-1116 yeast and yeast nutrient. Very little flavor loss and great fermentation. I would use these products again.
