Ain't used it yet.
I haven't pitched it yet, and even if I did it would be 18 months away from bottling.
So I can not rate this product at this time.

Prepare to back sweeten, but amazing!
I made a cider this fall and it turned out pretty darn good! its STRONG, but after back sweetening with apple juice concentrate, and regular white sugar and letting it bottle condition for about a week and a half its a beautiful apple cider that packs a slow punch and tastes great. perfect not too sweet and not too dry.
I used this yeast along with 3 gallons store bought apple juice, and a can of strawberry juice i bought here (omit that it didn't add any strawberry flavor) and 3.25 pounds of sugar. prime ferment for 2 weeks, secondary 2 weeks, bottle condition 1.5-2 weeks after adding 3 cans apple juice concentrate and a little sugar (1.25 cups). DONE. lots of fun, and will be making another wine with this yeast, but cranberry/ blueberry and honey.

Can't wait to sample that mead!
My first mead (after many years of abstinence from any fermenting) got a very nice start with this yeast! It came with an ice pack (which was absolutely necessary with our day temps. Thanks NB!) and initially I kept it in the fridge until I was getting ready to pitch. I took it out and had it sitting at room temps for a short while and at opening the vial I found it had already build up some pressure. I didn't do a starter for it this time, just added some yeast energizer and nutrient and aeration to the water honey mix, then pitched and off it went!!

Excellent w/ cider
Recently attempted my first cider (caramel apple). This yeast immediately went to work on provided an excellent cider that can't keep in stock.I was a bit concerned when it showed up and the tube was warm due to the hot weather. Immediately put it in the fridge and found no issues with fermentation.

Does this yeast ship with a cold pack?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, we ship with ice packs from April to November 15th. Cheers!
Is this only for 5 gallon use, or can it be used for a gallon of cider?
amanda m on Aug 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This quantity of yeast is intended for a 5-6 gallon batch, really. It would be fine to use it all in a one-gallon batch, but it's not very economical to use it like that. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
