in BosaGrape, Wine Making News

Dr John Husnik, PhD, of Renaissance Yeast Inc., is a leading researcher in the area of yeast development and classical breeding techniques in wine and other yeasts. He will be a speaker at the 15th Annual Enology Viticulture Conference July 21 – 22, 2014 at the Penticton Convention Centre.

Bosagrape is pleased to offer H2S-preventing wine yeasts produced under the  Renaissance Yeast brand.  These yeasts eliminate the risks and costs associated with hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and allow the true aroma and fruit expression of your wine to be enhanced. For more information about these yeasts, visit www.renaissanceyeast.com.

Bosagrape is going to start bringing in GigaYeast liquid yeast for brewing. Check out their yeast selection here.

GigaYeast Gold Pitch

This first shipment will have a special introductory price of $10.75. The regular price will be $12.00. Why do they have a higher price than Wyeast and White Labs?  Higher cell count — at least 200 billion yeast cells! The Gold pitch is the first homebrew yeast  with a true 5 gal pitch rate for consistent fermentations without the need for a starter.

Update on GigaYeast (April 7th)

GigaYeast only releases a few strains per week. Only 4 strains are available this week. We’ve decided to hold off for the moment, but we *will* be bringing in GigaYeast in the near future. Stay tuned!
