FRUITY yeast based on active dried yeast for use with fruits and berries or sugar fermentation systems.
A high ethanol tolerant active dried yeast blended with complete macro and micro nutrient complex ideal for fermentation of fruits and berries or any fermentable sugar-based feedstock. FRUITY yeast is especially recommended wherever rapid and high alcohol fermentation of fruit-based substrate is required, but can also be used to ferment pure sugar substrates.
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain in this yeast is ethanol tolerant up to 18% ABV and capable of fermenting between 20—30°C liquid temperature.
Note that ethanol tolerance is significantly reduced above 26°C. This strain is also tolerant to difficult fermentation conditions, has high SO2 tolerance, produces low volatile acidity and is low foaming.
FRUITY yeast contains only pure, chemically-defined ingredients and does not contain yeast extract or other non-chemically defined nutrients which can taint alcohol quality. FRUITY yeast includes fermentation activators to ensure rapid start to fermentation; combined with low bacterial count < 5 x 10⁴ cfu/g this greatly reduces potential for bacterial spoilage.
