A premium yeast from Scott Laboratories:

S. cerevisiae • cerevisiae

  • Isolated and selected by the INRA in Narbonne, France.
  • Known for fermenting fruity rosé wines and semi-sweet white wines because it produces long-lived aromas that result from the synthesis of relatively stable esters and higher alcohols.
  • Softens high acid musts by partially metabolizing malic acid.
  • Sensitive to competitive factors and may have difficulty competing with wild flora. Careful rehydration with Go-Ferm or Go-Ferm Protect and early inoculation will help Lalvin 71B® dominate in competitive conditions.

Pinot Gris, Riesling, Grenache, Rosé, Red French Hybrids, American Cultivars, Fruit Wines

Also good for cider.
