Solid Yeast
This yeast worked great. I was initially concerned because it was about two months past the “expiration” date. I used two sachets of yeast and rehydrated before adding to 5.5 gallons of sweet cider with 2 pounds of brown sugar. The cider temperature was about 68-72 degrees during fermentation. Lag time was about 36 hours. It took two weeks to finish fermenting in primary. 1.064OG fermented out to 0.094FG. Final product tasted very clean, no yeast character.

Produced s dry cider just like I wanted. I liked the wide range of temperature and alcohol content this yeast could withstand.

Mehh yeast
I was expecting some difference in this yeast rather than my go to cider yeast which is Nottingham. Now, I'll be the first to admit that my palate is far from superb, but I really couldn't tell the difference between the two. Also, this seemed to get off to a slower start than Nottingham, so there was a good 24-36 hours of handwringing while waiting for my airlock to bubble. BTW, I use Graham's English Cider recipe as found on homebrewtalk, which has been a great, simple recipe with great results.

What is the alcohol tolerance of this yeast?
Todd L on Dec 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This yeast can handle about 11%, depending on a few variables. Cheers!
Does this yeast give off a sulfur smell like the cider yeast that comes with the Brewers best cider kits ? Is there another cider yeast I could use that doesn’t give off that sulfur smell ?
Gregory S on Nov 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have gone though 20 batches with this yeast and never noticed a sulfur smell. YMMV.
