over 2 years agoA must have if you brew!I like ti keep some on hand in case my brew gets stuck.January 24, 2016Nice productTough to beat the price, works as it should (Imperial stout recipe kit), and all in all, 100% happy with this yeast.March 24, 2014Dry CiderWhen I want to make a high alcohol hard cider, this is my stand by yeast. It eats through everything, giving a dry apple flavored cider.March 23, 2014Makes a very dry MeadI made a higher alcohol Mead (18 pounds because I had some left over honey). These yeast ate it all and still wanted more. I gave them some DAP when pitching and degassed in the beginning. After 6 weeks I racked to a better bottle where it's been aging for 5 months. I tasted some when I racked and have high hopes.December 28, 2013Good for finishing strong beersI've used this several times in high-gravity beers that have "stuck" at lower attenuation than I wanted. It is also good for ensuring healthy yeast prior to bottle-conditioning a big beer. Clean, neutral flavor, except for a slight sulfur bite that fades with aging.December 21, 2013Versatile yeastWe have used this yeast with a rhubarb wine and apple cider and the final products were fantastic. This was active in the starter within a couple of hours and was really bubbling in the cider! Will definitely buy this again.November 9, 2013Multi-purpose yeastBeyond Champagne making its good for:_x000D__x000D_1 - Soda making_x000D_2 - Mead Making_x000D_3 - Cider Making_x000D__x000D_and if you dare - you can try it in a stuck fermentation, though it will come out very dry.October 30, 2013
