WHICH WINE YEAST IS BEST

The Wine Smith stocks several quality wine yeasts from Lalvin and Red Star.  We have found Lalvin EC-1118 to be the best all-around yeast for both wine kits and fresh fruit wines.  This Champagne yeast is fast starting, has low nutrient requirements and tolerates alcohol up to 18%. The 5 gram packet costs $1.25 and will ferment up to six gallons of wine. 
 
The other yeasts that we stock have specific strengths for particular fermentations.
