Healthy Yeast
I purchased this yeast for making my own hard cider. Very reliable and my cider is brewing away.

Great wine yeast for the price. I have been using it for about 10 years and have never had a problem. I will use it for all types of wine.

Great stuff
In 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!

Rhubarb wine
I'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!

Perfect
I use this for making apfelwine, and it always comes out perfect. Dry and crisp like it should be, plus for such short money, its a no brainer!

Nice Dry Product
We used this yeast with a concord grape wine and an apple wine. Both have turned out pretty good, a bit too dry for my significant other though. I enjoy them both. Active yeast started to bubble in the starter within a couple of hours, I am happy with this product.

Berry fines
I've had good luck with this yeast when making berry wines. I get full attenuation and the wine is good. It may smell a little while fermenting, but the final wine has no hint of off flavors. _x000D_

It worked...
Worked to make Edwort's Apfelwein. Super easy and tasty. Chugged right along and made a clear wine.

Works great
I've been using Montrachet in my blueberry wine and performs well. The next batch ill be using cote de blanc to try new yeasts and experiment a bit. All and all for under a dollar a pack its an outstanding yeast.

This 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?
K A on Mar 31, 2016
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.
