Lalvin EC-1118 Prise de Mousse Wine Yeast
Lalvin EC 1118 (AKA Prise de Mousse / Saccharomyces bayanus) Champagne yeast is a low foaming, vigorous and fast fermenter good for both reds and whites. It is also ideal for ciders and sparkling wines. A very competitive yeast that will inhibit wild yeasts. It will restart stuck fermentations because of good alcohol and sulfite tolerance. EC 1118 yeast is a very neutral strain that will have very little effect on the varietal character of the grape. A popular strain that ferments fully and flocculates well producing compact lees. Good for cool fermentations. Champagne, dry reds, whites, ciders and sparkling. 45-95° F (7-35° C) alcohol tolerance 18%
Great yeast for Apple Jack, worked well!
Just a routine re-supply. But in the new reality of COVID-INFINITY, that can be a figurative lifesaver for a serious homebrewer like myself.
Northern Brewer comes through again, and has a dedicated lifelong customer in me.
what I like is you can make a dry wine or rack early and stop the yeast to make a sweeter wine you only need to test the batch gives a freedom of choice
My Neighbors make great wine for home use. They asked me to get this strain for them, I ordered 20. So good Wine!
