Fermentation stalled half way thru in primary. Had to rack and re pitch. Will stay with my dry packs from now on.

I found this to be a dud
I was not really all that impressed with this. It puffed up in the package, but when I added it, it did not see to ferment at all. No bubbles, nothing. Perhaps it was user error on my part, but it did not work for me. Luckily I had a back up yeast that seemed to work nicely.

Easy to use. Would like to see it come in smaller volumes for smaller batches.

This is my first time for making mead . I have have made fruit wine for some time now. Erratic bubbles in the air lock and lack of activity in the must told me the yeast was not working. After two additional energized and nutrient applications, still not adequate. After research, I found that one package of yeast was only good to s.g.1.065 the recipe I am using calls for1.100 s.g. which requires 3 packs of yeast. This information should be available at time of purchase and should have full chart on the amply sized package.

I used this for a true mead, and a melomal... both turned out great. Left some honey, so no need to back sweeten.... ended around 13% ABV, 5 gallon batches, approx. 13lbs honey

Good results after 2 year fermentation and aging on a cyser
Would recommend, great finish, 12% ABV. Aromas of Port & Brandy for my particular recipe.

Is this suitable for 1 gallon batches?
Leonard H on Nov 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I believe it's made for a 5 gallon batch but it won't hurt to over pitch. Just make sure fermentation doesn't get too hot and maybe transfer to a 2ndary fermentor after a month or 2 to avoid autolysis. Or better yet, make a few 1 gallon batches and split it up.
Can a dry yeast be used in place of wyeast 4184?
Robert T on Nov 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. I understand you would like a dry yeast for making mead. You could use Lalvin D-47 (Y102), or Lalvin EC-1118 (Y104) Prise De Mousse for making mead. Just be sure to also get several packets of yeast nutrient because you are going to want to add it several times at 24 hour intervals. Cheers!
