Valuable for cidermakers Review by rcd
Rating
71B is a reliable yeast for cidermakers, with two important characteristics:
- It can reduce acidity (consume malic acid) substantially, which is a real help if you're working with a lot of sharp apples--common in the US.
- It almost never produces H2S (rotten-egg), even with low-nutrient fermentations. It's one of the most dependable yeasts for cider in this respect. (Posted on 2/6/13)
Used with Cider Review by Alex
Rating
I used this yeast with a batch of cider, which was actually my first attempt at brewing. I wanted to start out with a dry yeast and was quite happy with the 71B-1122. The batch turned out well. I might experiment with some wyeast in the future, but I'll definitely be using this again at some point. (Posted on 1/23/13)
Good Mead Yeast Review by Victoria
Rating
I have used this for the vast majority of my meads. It works very well for fruit meads. Out of around 13 batches, I have only had one stuck fermentation with 71B-1122, and that was due to having a an initial gravity of around 1.2. (Posted on 12/9/10)
