Pasteur Red yeast is a strong fermenter and produces full-bodied red wines. Particularly well suited for grapes from the Zinfandel and Cabernet families as well as Berry and Cherry Wine, Gamay, Merlot, Pinot, and Syrah.
Very happy with yeast. Works great and fast. Very active for weeks. I used in Dark Cherry and Blackberry wine making
always satisfied with there products and delivery
I used Red Star Rouge because I ended up using the original yeast packet from the Luna Red blend kit on some cider. I used it as an opportunity to try a different yeast than the standard Lalvin 1118 that comes with all the kits. The Red Star Rouge staled after a couple of days but put in some wine nutrient and it finished out to the desired gravity. Made a very clean tasting wine. It got me thinking that in the future I will try different yeast stains when making more expensive wine kits.
Got a bad batch must have gotten too hot during shipping
love it when you offer free shipping as we live 200 miles north. Wine kits always turn out great,even for someone who has trouble following simple instuctions.
