Safcider Yeast (6g) (shipping June)
This strain of this yeast is Saccharomyces bayanus and is recommended for all types of ciders even under difficult fermentation conditions.
This yeast has excellent settlement strength (High Flocculation), has a temperature range of 10 - 30°C, works at low pH from 3.3, low nitrogen requirements, very good assimilation of fructose and yield sugar/alcohol 16.3 g/l for 1% alc/vol. Pitching rate 20 to 30 g/hl.
Sprinkle the yeast in minimum 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort at 27°C± 3°C. Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch the yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20°C. Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes, then mix the wort using aeration or by wort addition.
