Can't wait to sample that mead! Review by Thomas
Rating
My first mead (after many years of abstinence from any fermenting) got a very nice start with this yeast! It came with an ice pack (which was absolutely necessary with our day temps. Thanks NB!) and initially I kept it in the fridge until I was getting ready to pitch. I took it out and had it sitting at room temps for a short while and at opening the vial I found it had already build up some pressure. I didn't do a starter for it this time, just added some yeast energizer and nutrient and aeration to the water honey mix, then pitched and off it went!! (Posted on 8/28/13)
Excellent w/ cider Review by Brad

Recently attempted my first cider (caramel apple). This yeast immediately went to work on provided an excellent cider that can't keep in stock.

I was a bit concerned when it showed up and the tube was warm due to the hot weather. Immediately put it in the fridge and found no issues with fermentation. (Posted on 8/11/13)
