RED STAR Côte des Blancs Home Winemaking Yeast 5g

RED STAR Côte des Blancs home winemaking yeast produces fine, fruity aromas and may be controlled by lowering temperatures to finish with some residual sugar. It is recommended for reds, whites, sparkling cuvees and non-grape fruit wines.

Red Star® Côte des Blancs (Davis #750) a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has been derived from a selection of the Geisenheim Institute in Germany. It is a relatively slow fermenter, identical to Geisenheim Epernay, but, producing less foam. This yeast requires nutrient addition for chardonnay fermentations. Côte des Blancs produces fine, fruity aromas and may be controlled by lowering temperatures to finish with some residual sugar. It is recommended for reds, whites, sparkling cuvees and non-grape fruit wines (especially apple, it is reported).

Ferments best between 17° - 30°C (64°-86°F). Sensitive below 13°C (55°F).

Alcohol tolerance: 14%

Rehydrate before pitching. Add to 50ml room temperature (max 38C) cooled boiled water. Wait 20 minutes.  Stir in to must.

Use 5g for any amount of wine up to 23 litres but do not split the yeast into smaller amounts for smaller batches. ie 5L batch - use 5g. 23L batch also use 5g.
