SafCider Fermentis Yeast

Available in 500g and 10kg packaging.


active dry yeast

The special yeast dedicated to ciders.

Ensures a very good assimilation of fructose and excellent for high gravity ciders.

Ingredients: Yeast (Saccharomyces bayanus*), emulsifier : sorbitan monostearate (E491)


– 20 to 30 g/hl for first fermentation
– 30 to 40 g/hl for prise de mousse


For all types of ciders even under difficult fermentation conditions.

Shelf life

4 years from production date.

Rehydration procedure

– Rehydrate the desired quantity of yeasts in 10 times its weight of water at 35-38°C.
– Stir avoiding the formation of lumps and leave to rest for 15 minutes.
– Progressively add must from the tank (2 or 3 additions) so that the temperature difference between the yeast starter and the initial must does not exceed 10°C. This stage allows the yeast to become acclimatized and avoids a thermal shock.
Example: If must that needs to be pitched is 14°C, the yeast starter temperature should not be more than 24°C prior to inoculation.
– Stir and leave to rest for ~8-10 minutes after each must additions.
– Incorporate the yeast starter in the fermentation tank during a pumping over with aeration.
The rehydration procedure should not exceed 45 minutes.
