Always works
I use this yeast constantly to make mead and some fruit wines. Always works great, fast fermentation, quick clearing, great flavor. Never fails to ferment.

Yeast was tasty :)
As usual the yeast was fresh and kicked off fermentation as desired!

This stuff will ferment concrete!
This stuff will ferment concrete! It will leave your wine, beer, cider with nearly zero residual sugar, i.e. DRY!If that's what you're after, then this will get the job done and tolerate high alcohol to boot.I used it for a hard apple cider and it did a wonderful job getting an F.G. of 1.003. I wanted a touch of sweetness in the cider and wanted bottle carbonation, so used some Splenda to provide the sweetness. Rave reviews! Apparently Splenda is harder to ferment than concrete.As to the negative reviews, be sure to heed the manufacturer's warning: "This strain is not used in producing sparkling wines."

Old reliable!
I have used this to make red, rose, white and fruit wines, flat and sparkling and even cider. Listed alc tolerance 15%? I got 16% out of an apple wine! Ferments sugars very completely and finishes dry at almost any OG. Very neutral finish that hasn't over-powered even the lightest flavors. While it states that it is 'not used in producing sparkling wines', i have done so successfully. Very versatile and reliable! My go to fruit yeast for years.

worked well in my sodas
I used this yeast in a few batches of ginger beer and tart cherry soda and didn't have any off flavors at all. Perfectly neutral, and fast fermentation (soda ready/well-carbonated in 12-24 hours).

nice for apple wine
This will make a very nice apple wine. Very clean and fairly dry. Age for 6 to 12 months.

Easy to use, ferments well!
This yeast is essentially fool-proof. I am fairly new to brewing and this was the first yeast recommended to me by Northern Brewer for my cider. I'm on batch three, and getting ready to start a batch of apple Graf. Ferments easy and quickly and leaves a dry cider that is neutral for back-sweetening.

Do not use for Soda!
Tried this in a grape soda and fermented at around 70-75 degress and got the worst yeasty rotten egg flavor coming through. I tried it based on many saying it was a very neutral yeast, never again! Maybe I should have tried the Cuvee instead . . . Soda makers beware!

Is this product gluten free
B R on Jan 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Mary,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! I did some digging and found that all yeast in its isolated form is gluten free. The yeast that you want to worry about would be brewers yeast. That is because it is propagated using barley malt, which in turn contains gluten, this means that the brewers yeast might be carrying small levels of gluten proteins. I hope that you find this helpful!
I am making a Mead and have decided to use this yeast. Whats the best way to pitch the yeast? Re-hydrate before? And what would happen if were to pitch it dry?
A shopper on Feb 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I guess if you are concerned you can proof your yeast to make sure it's alive by putting it in a bowl with a little sugar water. But I've never done that. I've always pitched it dry on the top of the cider without stirring before I seal it up and that has always worked. It will slowly drop to the bottom and after it wakes up it will spread thru the whole batch. Usually start seeing bubbling the next day or so.
How much honey dose one packet of this need for a 5 galon batch of mead???
