for Winemakers

Active Dry Yeast

Active dry wine yeast comes in a convenient and easy-to-handle granulated form that offers a long shelf life when stored under vacuum at ambient temperatures. Winemakers across the industry prefer this form of yeast, as it induces the onset of rapid, reliable and consistent fermentation.

Experience has shown that wine and beverage quality is significantly affected by the strain of yeast conducting the fermentation. Thus, important quality parameters such as volatile acidity, hydrogen sulphide production, aromatic character and dryness of fermentation can be determined by the strain used. Proven selections of active dry wine and beverage yeast strains of high purity and quality reduce the risk of uncertainty associated with indigenous fermentation.
