7 months agoFast and fruityMy batch with Pasteur Red also started and finished quickly. I used it on a 6-gallon malbec kit. I like that this yeast brings out some berry flavors in the finished wine. My gravity finished a little high, but still dry. This could have been from a few different factors, but wanted to mention it in case anyone else sees the same result. I will be using this on a batch of concord grape juice next.November 9, 2013fast replyI used this yeast to make a blueberry wine last year so I ordered two packets this year. When they arrived, with my order of twenty-five other products one packet was empty. After sending one e-mail Midwest sent me two packets to replace the one empty one in a couple of days. That is the kind of service that will keep me as a customer.October 6, 2013fast fermenationstarts fast and finishes wellFebruary 25, 2013

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 14 answersHow many gallons per packet?BEST ANSWER: 5 gal per pack has always worked for me. I mix with 1/4 cup warm water 20 minutes before using.I’m making one gallon batch of elderberry wine. Should I use only a partial package?BEST ANSWER: Each package is good for 1 to 5 gallons. If you use the entire package you will have a vigorous start which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Let it ferment in a cool place like your basement. That will slow the fermentation. I would not use a partial package. Once you break the seal on the package, the yeast may not keep long, it will absorb moisture.I have 54 gallons barrel with must grapes ready.
Can I add (used) red star yeast with wild yeast the grapes have it.

Also,if you have crush-destemmer by hand machine,how much cost it and shipping by ship to Durres port-Albania.
YlliBEST ANSWER: Your pitching rates will depend on the gravity of your must and the health of your yeast. We do not carry any crushers or de-stemmers. We are not equipped to ship internationally, but we could ship to a forwarding company in the USA, and they could take care of the necessary paperwork and forward it on to you.
