Is RedStar DADY different than Fermentis yeast?

Postby amdamgraham » Thu Jan 04, 2018 5:18 pm

I bought a 1lb bulk bag of Red Star DADY. I wanted to learn more about it than what the homebrew store websites mention (invariably the same promotional paragraph) and I could not get the answer I wanted when I used HD Google. To the point, I went to the Red Star web site and when you get to wine & distillers yeasts you get redirected to Fermentis which has products specifically targeting micro distillers and various styles. So this begs the question, what is Red Star DADY in relation to the specific, targeted Fermentis yeasts? Is it a legacy Red Star strain that Fermentis does not sell or is it possibly one of their strains (like Safspirit USW-6 or GR-2) but sold "generically" as just Red Star DADY. Anybody know?

Hi,
Red Star and Fermentis are divisions of Lesaffre
Check this pdf : https://bsgcraftbrewing.com/Resources/CraftBrewing/PDFs/Product_Sheets/Fermentis/fermentis_dady.pdf

I guess dady is a selected strain that works well with all grain mashes to be distilled, like other strains they have for beers, wines and so on.
It might be sold under Red Star somewhere on the planet and under Fermentis somewhere else.
