Yeast Wine

by admin on July 4, 2012

Your yeast selection should be based on :

  1. The grape and style of wine
  2. Fermentation conditions
  3. Must nutrient levels (YANC)
  4. The enological properties that can enhance the sensory characteristics of your wines.

DO NOT SKIMP ON YEAST.

  • Additions rates vary and should be respected. They are based on total juice at brix <25. If your juice is >25 brix add 10g/hl more.
  • Follow proper yeast rehydration procedures. These are listed on the 5gm and 500gm packages. For 50gm and 100gm repacks please ask for your instruction sheet.
  • Manufacturers will give proprietary names to similar yeasts available through other manufacturers.
