To "pitch" (add it to your wine) your yeast you should rehydrate for 20 minutes first:

  • Use room temperature booled cooled water - 50mls for 5g yeast.
  • If you are using it, add GO-FERM® Protect first.
  • Then add your yeast.
  • Stir gently - it will clump but don't worry about that as it will even out as it rehydrates.
  • Leave to sit for 20 minutes.
  • Make sure your wine is about the same temperature as the yeast when you stir in the yeast.
