Tough to beat the price, works as it should (Imperial stout recipe kit), and all in all, 100% happy with this yeast.

Dry Cider Review by OHara

Product Rating:

When 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.

Makes a very dry Mead Review by Sample

Product Rating:

I 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.

Good for finishing strong beers Review by Radome

I'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.

Versatile yeast Review by GaiaWolf

We 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.

Multi-purpose yeast Review by Chris

Beyond Champagne making its good for:

1 - Soda making
2 - Mead Making
3 - Cider Making

and if you dare - you can try it in a stuck fermentation, though it will come out very dry.

Egg smell in my pear-apple cider Review by Estuar

It left a subtle smell of rotten eggs in my pear-apple cider, and repeated on it for several hours :(

It worked Review by Chris

Product Rating:

It worked like it was supposed to. I used it for soda and cider. Perfect for the sodas, a little too dry and zesty for my taste on the cider.

Used for Mead Review by Randall

(Posted on 5/30/13)

Product Rating:

Used this yeast for my first attempt at making mead and starting fermenting in a few hours. Note this will make a very dry mead so you will have to sweeten before bottling if you are looking for a sweet/semi dry mead. I prefer dry. Bought a few extra packs to keep around. Good stuff !!!

Great finisher Review by Andrew

(Posted on 5/20/13)

Product Rating:

This is a great yeast to finish fermenting if you have remaining fermentables in the wort. It finds any fermentable sugars, gobbles them up and goes looking for more. If you're looking for a dryer finish, this will definitely get you there.

If all your fermentables come from extract, understand that there will be a limit to the FG that you can achieve due to unfermentable sugars. Despite the high attenuation of this yeast, it won't ferment the dextrose sugars and will still leave you with a sweet finish.
