Fast, clean, easy
I've used a lot of yeasts on all kinds of wines and this seems to be the best all around (will dry about anything out/use all available sugar). It even turned Welch's grape juice into a very drinkable dry red. Ferment is very, very fast with limited foam, settles fast and tastes clean. I keep 3 or 4 packets in the fridge for last minute projects.

Great Resiliency
I was surprised how well this yeast worked even though my wine started off a bit cooler than I would have preferred.

Fast start
One of the best all around yeasts I have used._x000D_It startes fast, ferments fast, and finishes clean._x000D_I have used it twice to restarting stuck fermentations. _x000D_I rehydrated it, and mixed it in gently with some additional nutrient.

Stalls at low temps
Despite the published fermentation temps, I have found that this yeast will stall at around 59-60F, so not ideal for winter basement ferments, but its fine if you keep it closer to 68F.

good yeast for strong dry wines
I agree with others, this is a good yeast for dry, high alcohol wines. I have also seen this yeast included in kits to make your own root beer.
