Red Star Premier Classique (Montrachet)
AKA UCD #522. A strong fermenter with good alcohol tolerance that is useful in producing dry, full bodied red and white wines. Will leave a wine with intense color and excellent flavor complexity while preserving tannin content. This yeast will produce hydrogen sulfide gas in the presence of excess sulfur compounds and therefore should not be used to ferment grapes that contain residual sulfur dust. Temperature range: 59-86 F. Alcohol Tolerance: 13%.
Watermelon wine is looking good. About 1 more month and it will be ready to bottle. The muscadine wine is starting to clear. Looking at about 2 more months. No issues with the Montrachet yeast. It did a great job.
The Red Star Premier Classique (Montrachet) has always worked wonderfully for me, and I have used it for years. You can depend on it to make every time.
Order arrived quick considering the pandemic. Satisfied with products. I was able to make my dandelion wine just in time. Can’t wait to try it in a few months.
Does really good
My cranberry wine turned out terrific!
