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.

Provides a clean crisp finish.
This is a very hardy yeast that I used for a cinnamon apple cider. It fermented out almost all the sugars and left a very dry cider behind. I back sweetened to taste with honey and it didn’t seem to restart fermentation. Would highly recommend!
