Ferments great
I bought this yeast to make a couple gallons of hard cider, usually I can buy cider yeast from a local store but they stopped carrying it so I ordered this. It fermented fast and my cider smells great. It's currently aging in the bottles but I think it's going to taste great too. I would order this yeast again.

Is there a difference in flavor characteristics between this yeast and other Saccharomyces Bayanus strains such as EC-1118? Thanks :)
A shopper on Jun 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I think SafCider gives me the best flavors for dry hard cider than the champagne (Pris de Mouse) or American ale yeasts that I have tried.
The biggest advantage of this strain for cider is that it work well at room temp ( I do not have a cool cellar) and produces produces very small bubbles and little foam so I do not have to ferment in a larger primary vessel.
What’s the difference between this yeast and bread yeast?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A whole lot. Cider, beer, and wine yeast are very specific to making a particular product. The yeast produce many of the flavors that are specific to a style of beer, wine, or cider.

You could use bread yeast to produce an alcohol containing beverage but you'd know from the first taste that something was amiss.
