“EXCELLENT CIDER YEAST”
Tried this yeast on my 3rd batch of cider. Used fresh pressed cider from a local orchard that was UV pasteurized. Made a 50/50 starter from DME + water and the cider. Added brown sugar to increase OG and pitched the yeast. Visible fermentation from my airlock was observed in a little over 4 hours at 70 degrees F. As explained in the description of this yeast, a slight sulfur smell was produced during fermentation but clears up quickly. Racked to the secondary with a hydrometer reading of 1.000. Despite the very low sugar content (or next to none), a hint of residual sweetness could be noted with exceptional apple flavor and slight tartness. I had planned on back sweetening the cider but might leave it as is because it tastes great. Definitely an excellent cider yeast.
