Pitching/Fermentation : Red Star Premier Cuvée Wine Yeast(Davis 796), a strain of Saccharomyces bayanus from a French wine yeast, is a special isolate of Red Star Yeast & Products. This yeast has good tolerance to ethanol and free sulfur dioxide, and ferments to dryness. Premier Cuvée is noted as a very low producer of foam, urea, and fusel oils. It is recommended for reds, whites and especially champagne.

Notes : This yeast is reported to perform well restarting stuck fermentations. Winemakers have remarked that Premier Cuvée is the fastest, cleanest, and most neutral fermenter offered by Red Star.

Best Styles : Anything but residual-sugar wines

For a neutral spirit
Bought this based on a recipe found here: This is for a 6 gallon wash. (23 Liter) 9 pounds of sugar{dissolved in hot water} 1 tsp of citric acid 2 Tbsp of DAP (Yeast Nutrient) 1/8 tsp Epsom salts 60 grams Red Star Premier Cuvee Yeast OR ¼ cup bakers yeast 1 tsp Gypsum (For PH and Hardness) In fact I bought most of the above from AiH. Worked really well. Fermentation was very quick to start, but a slower paced fermentation throughout (about 10 days from beginning to end). Distilled 1x through a T500 and filtered 1x through a homemade activated carbon filter tube. No cuts, no stripping runs, etc... Turned out really well and enjoyed by many.
