Order Process

My order arrived finally after quite a bit of wait time - it was yeast so could have been shipped easily w first class mail and arrived within days instead of weeks. The product is great but distribution is an issue to work on. My order came but only a week after another shipment showed up on my doorstep. It was addressed to me but not anything I even viewed online. It left me wondering if they got my order mixed up and another customer was left waiting. Good product but need to work on distribution accuracy and timeliness.

Strong Yeast

Did an excellent job fermenting all the sugars in different temperatures. Fairly basic flavor profile, which i view as a good thing, so that you can get specific flavor profiles with combinations that you want specifically. Already have a new cider fermenting now!

Worked great, used 5 gallons Mayer Brothers apple Juice, ingredient list was pasteurized apple juice. No added sugar, fermented for 2 weeks, bottled with 5 ounces corn sugar. After 2 weeks produced a dry cider, I’ll make this again. Simple great result.
