Just found this. "The ingredients in Red Star's bread machine yeast are yeast, ascorbic acid and sorbitan monostearate. Ascorbic acid is used as a conditioner for the dough, which can help increase the volume of the dough. Bread machine yeast is semi-dormant cake yeast that has had moisture removed, giving it a longer shelf life than cake yeast. It is a fast-acting yeast suitable for bread machines and can be mixed with other dry ingredients. No rehydration is required for use in bread machines, but the yeast can also be rehydrated and used for traditional baking. It should not be used in doughs that require refrigeration or freezing".

Thinking it might be worth a try as in my area it is the same cost as the "standard dry active".

If you have a sams or Costco and have a membership. Yeast is much cheaper there. Usually under $5 for 2 lbs.

I just went to the shop where I usually get the yeast and they have not distiller´s yeast anymore.

They offer me this one

Do you think it will work for the Uncle Jesse's Simple Sour Mash Method ?

It will work. I don't use it. But others do. Many use a champagne yeast for many different washes. Usually because they have a higher alcohol content resistance. But have a cleaner ferment.

Red Star® Côte des Blancs (Davis 750), a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has been derived from a selection of the Geisenheim Institute in Germany. It is a relatively slow fermenter, identical to Geisenheim Epernay, but producing less foam. This yeast requires nutrient addition for most chardonnay fermentations. Côte des Blancs produces fine, fruity aromas and may be controlled by lowering temperature to finish with some residual sugar. It is recommended for reds, whites, sparkling cuvées and non-grape fruit wines (especially apple).. Ferments best between 17°-30°C (64°-86°F). Sensitive below 13°C (55°F).

By relatively slow fermenter they mean vs. ?

And would this yeast produce a decent end product?

And to what form/recipe would this yeast preferentially enjoy most?
