1 year agoGreat stuffIn the past, I've used bread yeast to make my wine. Although I was able to get fermentation and produce wine that was drinkable it left a lot to be desired. Since using the Red Star Montrachet Wine Yeast, the fermentation seems to be stronger and the finished product clears quicker. Also, the finished product tastes better.
I would recommend this product!May 24, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoRhubarb wineI've used montrachet yeast to make rhubarb wine. I crashed fermentation a bit early to maintain some sweetness. It's wonderful! I used the recipe from EC Kraus. Definitely recommend!April 4, 2017

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 3 answersThis may seem silly, but I'm new to the wine making world and I want to make a strawberry wine for my friend. Only problem is she has a gluten allergy and I heard that some yeasts have gluten. So myou question is does this one have gluten in it?BEST ANSWER: Looking up information on alcohol that is gluten free. They say that wine is considered gluten free. They say some distilleries add flour to the oak barrels during aging. But since you are making it just don't add anything with gluten in it. The strawberry wine that I made last year came out great. Since it was one of the first ones that I made, it came out a little cloudy. Just make sure that you syphon it off numerous times. The more you syphon it the clearer it will be. I've made watermelon which was a hit and about to bottle a batch of muscadine and trying some orange for a guy with fruit trees.
