Cider House Select Brewer's Best

BB Cider

Species : Cider
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 54-82
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : n/a
Flocculation : n/a
Alcohol Tolerance : 16%

Pitching/Fermentation : To rehydrate the yeast to a cream, add the required weight of dry yeast to 10 times its weight of water previously adjusted to a temperature between 95 - 104°F (35 - 40°C). Stir gently into a yeast cream for between 10 and 15 minutes then add yeast cream directly to the must and mix thoroughly. Ensure the temperature difference between the starter culture and must does not exceed 50°F (10°C). This strain is capable of fermenting between 54 - 82°F (12 - 28°C) but best results are achieved when a temperature between 61 - 75°F (16 - 24°C) is maintained. To avoid extended lag time and risk of bacterial contamination ensure must/ juice temperature is above 60°F (16°C) for the start of fermentation and for at least the first 24 hours.

Notes : Cider House Select yeast is a high ester-producing strain, creating exceptional flavor. Trace nutrition has been included in this sachet to ensure the best possible cider quality through good healthy yeast. Our active dried yeast is suitable for all types of ciders and is able to ferment under various conditions. The optimum dosage rate for this strain is 1g per 1.3 gallons (5 liters) of must. Yeast can be added directly to the must (it is important to ensure complete mixing) or alternatively as a yeast cream. Yeast should be added at least 1 day after SO2 addition.

Best Styles : Cider, Fruit Cider

Works Great!
Pitched this yeast on a Saturday afternoon for some apple pie hooch. (5 gallons apple concentrate and 2.5lbs dark brown sugar) The starting gravity reading was 1.070. The primary fermentation was complete by the following Wednesday with a gravity reading of 1.01. I've used Lav d-47 and Lav EC-1115 but this yeast seems to be more "beginner friendly". Thanks for helping make this beginner look good...Cheers
