Lalvin EC 1118 (AKA Prise de Mousse / Saccharomyces bayanus) Champagne yeast is a low foaming, vigorous and fast fermenter good for both reds and whites. It is also ideal for ciders and sparkling wines. A very competitive yeast that will inhibit wild yeasts. It will restart stuck fermentations because of good alcohol and sulfite tolerance. EC 1118 yeast is a very neutral strain that will have very little effect on the varietal character of the grape. A popular strain that ferments fully and flocculates well producing compact lees. Good for cool fermentations. Champagne, dry reds, whites, ciders and sparkling. 45-95° F (7-35° C) alcohol tolerance 18%
The beginning of my homebrew journey started over 5 years ago, after my wife took me on a surprise brewery tour in Portland, Maine. The people, the community and the passion fueled my dreams from there on. I went home and brewed and brewed and brewed. I spent a lot of time at my local supply store asking questions and learning. I then got a job in a tap room and went on to brew professionally. My passion is this industry, every part of it. It is an industry where people help others succeed and that is my goal for this store. I want to be there for all questions, for all trials and for all successes. This is more than a store for my family, this is a place for community and I can't wait to meet you all!
