Product Details

AKA Prise de Mousse. Saccharomyces bayanus. 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. This is a very neutral yeast 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 cider yeast
With all the high ratings that this had, I thought it would turn out a lot better. Had a little bitter aftertaste. Wasn't much different than the Dunkelweizen. Was expecting more out of this beer.

Awesome Yeast
I got this kit followed the instructions, Did the 14 day fermentation, 14 day in bottles and on the 16th day i tried one. horrible taste and dark color but it did smell like beer. I dumped it out and waited 1 more week and tried one more, this one has an olive taste still a dark color and a bit more drinkable but still dumped it out. No idea what's wrong but 1 more week and if that ones bad then will dump all in the drain. I have read to buy only fresh ingredients but I never check the dates on that kit, the all grain kit I ordered had good dates on it and it's fermenting as I type.

Awesome Yeast
I use EC-1118 in my first 2 batches of Mead and both turned out awesome. After trying out some other yeasts I recommend this one to anyone.

Great for Spiced Pumpkin Wine!
My love for Saisons is the reason I got into brewing beer this year. Saison Dupont, St. Feuillien Saison, Yards Saison, Hennepin, and Brooklyn Sorachi Ace are some of my favorites.But, this beer is possibly the best Saison I've ever tasted. I'm seriously impressed.I used one very fresh Wyeast 3724 smack pack, purchased from my local homebrew shop. There was no need for a starter in my case. Fermentation started quickly and agressively. I needed the blowoff hose on my 6 gallon carboy within the first 12 hours.If you read about this yeast strain on the Wyeast website; on any of the homebrew forums; or, in Phil Markowski's book called "Farmhouse Ales", you'll learn that it needs to be fermented at high temperatures.If you don't ferment in the mid eighties or higher, the fermentation is likely to slow or stall at a gravity of about 1.03.Based on my reading, I used a fermwrap and was easily able to ferment in the high eighties, and about 90 from about midway through the process. Adjustments were possible by adding some insulation.I used a temperature strip that goes up to 93 to ensure that it didn't get too hot. No worries if the strip isn't completely accurate. Wyeast reports an ideal range up to 95. And, Markowski suggests that even higher temps are likely okay.The high temperatures help to produce a wonderful Saison funk taste and a bold fruitiness, a bit like prune. There's also a mild spice taste that hits the back of the mouth. It's really a pleasure to smell and to drink if you're a lover of Saisons.Like any great Saison, this beer is balanced out nicely with a dry finish.I racked to secondary after about three weeks and bottled almost 5 weeks later.OG: 1.052 (May 3)Racked to Secondary: 1.020 (May 23)FG: 1.007 (June 28)ABV: 5.91%

Great for Spiced Pumpkin Wine!
I restarted my brewing hobby after a number of years and as the result of an overabundance of Pumpkins in my Garden. I looked yeast that could deal with a lot of Pulp, and this one was most reccomended. This yeast digested that Pulp and poduced a Good Wine!
