71B (Narbonne) Lalvin


Species : Wine
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 59-86
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : n/a
Flocculation : Medium
Alcohol Tolerance : 14%

Pitching/Fermentation : Has the ability to metabolize high amounts (20% to 40%) of malic acid. In addition to producing rounder, smoother, more aromatic wines that tend to mature quickly, it does not extract a great deal of phenols from the must so the maturation time is further decreased.

Notes : The 71B is used primarily by professional winemakers for young wines such as vin nouveau and has been found to be very suitable for blush and residual sugar whites. For grapes in regions naturally high in acid, the partial metabolism of malic acid helps soften the wine. The 71B also has the ability to produce significant esters and higher alcohols, making it an excellent choice for fermenting concentrates.

Best Styles : Blush, Residual Sugar Whites, Nouveau, Young Red Wines, Late Harvest Wines, Rose

Juiced Wine

This type of yeast worked great for making wine from store bought white grape juice. Fermentation for 5 gal. took 2 weeks and finished product was delightful.

Great choice, but ... oops

This is a highly regarded yeast for making fruit meads. I've had success with it previously. I may have mishandled it this time around, as it was very sluggish. Under pitch, heat shock, residual metabisulfite? Not sure but all are a possibility. Ultimately I rescued the mead with RC212 that I had lying around. My high rating is based on past experiences and not my bungled use of it this time around. Lesson -- dry yeast is inexpensive. Keep some extras around.
