This is the only yeast I use for all fruit wines. It yields a high ABV, about 17%, consistently.
I usually use this brand and type. so I cannot tell you much.
This yeast is great! Started working right away and very active.
I have used this on 2 of my brews. I use wort after it started boiling to proof my yeast, let it cool to 110 and set it up in a screw cap or flip top bottle and let it proof while wort boils for an hour. Always comes out great, first batch had bubble within an hour. Always a great backup.
In my last review I explained how I only achieved 15% abv using this yeast. After a bit of research, I found several different ABV calculations and discovered that calculating ABV is NOT a linear equation. I plugged in my BSG and FSG into a simpler wine calculation and got 15.8% abv. Then I plugged them into a more complicated equation for higher alcohol beverages and got 17.7%._x000D_So, if you find yourself attaining lower alcohol content than you anticipated with this yeast, make sure you are using the correct equation. Use the "alternate" on this page:_x000D_http://www.brewersfriend.com/abv-calculator/_x000D__x000D_Or, if you are going to be in the normal wine-ballpark, use BSG-FSG / 0.736, and multiply the result by 100.
