Merry Christmas! Recommended date to place Christmas orders by 16th December 2019.  We will be despatching orders throughout the Christmas period, but deliveries will only be on non-statutory days.  We may not despatch orders containing yeast on Fridays or the day before statutory holidays.
Orders Containing Yeast:  Please leave delivery instructions to avoid yeast sitting in sun or heat.  

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.
