500 g Fermentis SafCider Yeast Fermentis
Species : Cider
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 50-86
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : n/a
Flocculation : n/a
Alcohol Tolerance : 16%
Pitching/Fermentation : Rehydrate the desired quantity of yeasts in 10 times its weight of water at 95-100°F.
- Stir avoiding the formation of lumps and leave to rest for 15 minutes.
- Progressively add must from the tank (2 or 3 additions) so that the temperature difference between the
yeast starter and the initial must does not exceed 50°F. This stage allows the yeast to become acclimatized
and avoids a thermal shock.
Example: If must that needs to be pitched is 57°F, the yeast starter temperature should not be more than
75°F prior to inoculation.
- Stir and leave to rest for ~8-10 minutes after each must additions.
- Incorporate the yeast starter in the fermentation tank during a pumping over with aeration.
The rehydration procedure should not exceed 45 minutes.
Notes : For all types of ciders even under difficult fermentation conditions
Best Styles : Cider
