Lalvin D-47 White Wine Yeast
D-47 is a vigorous white wine yeast that will leave a wine very full bodied with enhanced mouthfeel. Accentuates varietal character and contributes ripe tropical fruit and citrus notes. Recommended for Chardonnay and Rose as well as mead, when nutrients are supplemented. Whites, rose, mead. Temperature range: 59° - 68° F (15° - 20° C). Alcohol Tolerance: 14%.
Good activation followed by 30 days of raucous fermentation. Looking forward to sipping mead about this time next year
Used his yeast for a batch of Hard Limeade
Lalvin ICV - D-47 White Wine Yeast
This yeast performed adequately so far. One weeks in, racked my mead onto some fruits. One week later, added sugar from the fruit is still fermenting.
Used for a champagne ale I did. Fruity notes of pear, apple, and passion fruit.
