Wyeast 4766 Cider Yeast
Wyeast 4766 Cider is a crisp dry fermenting yeast with big, fruity finish. Creates a nice balance for all types of apples, pears and other fruit or fermentables. Allows fruit character to dominate the profile. Temperature range: 60-75 F. Alcohol Tolerance: 12%.
*NOTE:*During summer months, we include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeast orders. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and particularly hot temperatures. For this reason, we recommend ordering dry yeast during summer months.
The cider turned out fantastic
First time making cider, 11 gal batch. Was a little concerned with the ferment at first (used to the very active ferments of big beer yeasts). The fermentation started off slow, but steady. The recipe had apple juice plus added brown sugar OG 1.063, and I had created a starter. A week later, still fermenting, another week, still fermenting. At three weeks, still fermenting, a bubble every couple minutes into blow-off tube, SG 1.03, and transferred to secondary. That was 1-1/2 weeks ago, so waiting patiently, giving this one a little more time.
Made a jalapeño apple cider with this & worked perfectly
I ordered jugs and yeast, and I received what I ordered in a timely fashion
Made this cider out of season and worked out pretty great using store bought cider. My next batch will be using hand picked apples and fresh pressed cider, but I’ll still be using this yeast!
