Winemaking Yeasts

The yeast you choose may result in subtle differences to the end result BUT the main influences to your finished wine will be the fruit/raw ingredients you use.  As a general rule there is not a yeast for a particular fruit.  Dark fruits may benefit slightly from using a red wine yeast in that you may get more colour extraction and stability.  If you don't know what yeast to use, get EC1118 as it provides a robust, neutral ferment.
