Yeast for wine

Showing 5 of 5 results
Yeast doesn't just turn the sugar into your wine into alcohol, it can have an amazing impact on the flavour and body of your finished wine. While you can use general-purpose wine yeast for all country-style, or juice wines, many recipes will benefit from using specific strains, such as a burgundy-style, to produce full-bodied red wine.

If you are making a dessert, Sherry or Port-style wine, then you should choose a yeast designed for this style, which has a higher alcohol tolerance than general purpose yeast, enabling you to achieve those higher ABVs.

For sparkling wines, a champagne yeast will be a real benefit, giving a dryer, higher alcohol wine than you might otherwise achieve.
