Ordering Yeast?  Please provide an instruction for courier to specific place they can leave the package to avoid heat/sun but avoid saying "leave in shade" because shaded areas change throughout the day.  We may not despatch orders containing yeast on a Friday.

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.
