Ideal yeast for fruit fermentation
Recommended for fruit fermentation due to it fructophilic character. Reported as a neutral strain, but in some cases produces refined and balanced esters. Low nitrogen demand and high resistance to alcohol. Very good option to produce most of fruits distillates, calvados, pears, brandies, etc. Very good results in agave distillates.
Ingredients: yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), emulsifier: E491 (sorbitan monostearate)
① Rehydrate the yeast in 10 times its volume of water or wort at 25°C – 35 °C (77.0°F – 95.0°F)
② Leave to rest for 15 minutes
③ Gently stir
④ Pitch in the fermentor

Note that you could find a different yeast classification for this product on our sachets and on older versions of our communication tools.
Indeed, this product was previously classified as Saccharomyces bayanus, but as the taxonomic classification of yeasts is a highly evolutive concept, the most recent edition of ‘The Yeast, a taxonomic study’ made us revise our classification to be aligned with the scientific community.
For sustainable reasons, we made the choice to use our remaining stock of printed sachets before we re-print new ones.
In the meantime, don’t worry if you have already fermented your beverage with this yeast strain, yeast taxonomy classification has no impact on the product characteristics.
