BB Cider

Species : Cider
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 54-82
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : n/a
Flocculation : n/a
Alcohol Tolerance : 16%
Makes: Up to 6 US gallons

Pitching/Fermentation : To rehydrate the yeast to a cream, add the required weight of dry yeast to 10 times its weight of water previously adjusted
to a temperature between 95 - 104°F (35 - 40°C). Stir gently into a yeast cream for between 10 and 15 minutes then add
yeast cream directly to the must and mix thoroughly. Ensure the temperature difference between the starter culture and
must does not exceed 50°F (10°C).
This strain is capable of fermenting between 54 - 82°F (12 - 28°C) but best results are achieved when a temperature
between 61 - 75°F (16 - 24°C) is maintained. To avoid extended lag time and risk of bacterial contamination ensure must/
juice temperature is above 60°F (16°C) for the start of fermentation and for at least the first 24 hours.

Notes : Cider House Select yeast is a high ester-producing strain, creating exceptional flavor. Trace nutrition has been included in this sachet to ensure the best possible cider quality through good healthy yeast. Our active dried yeast is suitable for all types of ciders and is able to ferment under various conditions. The optimum dosage rate for this strain is 1g per 1.3 gallons (5 liters) of must. Yeast can be added directly to the must (it
is important to ensure complete mixing) or alternatively as a yeast cream. Yeast should be added at least 1 day after SO2

Cider smells like saison

Steady fermentation with additional nutrients. Chewed from 1.042 to 1.001 in 9 days at 62∞F. Started with 1/2 tsp of yeast nutrient in store-bought apple juice, hoping that would be enough but got H2S at the last few gravity points! First time using this yeast and it gave the cider a smell like saison yeast - herbal, citrus and a little bit of bubblegum. I didn't enjoy it dry but it's good backsweetened to 1.008 with apple juice concentrate.

Very Vigorous

I placed this yeast & Nutrient blend, in 5 gallons of fresh pressed apple juice with 2 Lb's of brown sugar added, two weeks ago . Air lock is still bubbling away, finally slowed down to one bloop every 3 seconds.

Love at first cider house yeast packet

This yeast is my go-to for cidermaking. In fact, I'm about to order my next few packs after I submit this review.

Consistent results

This is my favorite cider yeast. I've used it several times, and previously had to use other yeasts when I didn't have this on hand. It lets the flavor of the cider come through and doesn't muddle the flavor with undesirable attributes.

Works Great!

Pitched this yeast on a Saturday afternoon for some apple pie hooch. (5 gallons apple concentrate and 2.5lbs dark brown sugar) The starting gravity reading was 1.070. The primary fermentation was complete by the following Wednesday with a gravity reading of 1.01. I've used Lav d-47 and Lav EC-1115 but this yeast seems to be more "beginner friendly". Thanks for helping make this beginner look good...Cheers
