not for me Review by Coinin
Rating
I made 5 batches of mead using this yeast, and got a stuck fermentation in all but one. very disappointed in this yeast. the one that didn't stick had it's own problems and still came out too sweet for my liking. I'm ordering EC-1118 to get them fermenting again, and will be sticking with EC-1118 for all my future Meads, excepting perhaps Sweet Mead now and then. (Posted on 12/14/13)
Has become a favorite Review by David
Rating
I have used this in several meads, and I would have to say that it is one of my favorites. It adds an extremely silky mouthfeel, basically increasing the body of the mead. Also, if left on the lees, it can add citrusy notes, though I haven't mastered this method - I have had good luck some times doing this.

Great for meads Review by Seth

I agree with the previous reviewer, this strain is good for making meads. Mine was a semi-sweet mead with wildflower honey using a no-boil process. I also used both a yeast nutrient and yeast energizer in the must. Turned out both great tasting and looking. (Posted on 10/19/10)
