I am trying this yeast in a batch of muscadine wine. We have a good recipe and I wanted to get a wine with some different qualities. The yeast acted well although the wine seems to take a little longer to clarify. The taste of the wine is excellent and we will be bottling this experiment shortly.
I ordered my yeast during the height of the covid outbreak, so it was taking a little longer to get my package shipped out. I contacted the company asking them if the virus was effecting anything, within minutes I received a reply stating that it was. But they let me know the condition of my package and when they planned to ship it out and I even got a coupon when I did get my shipment 4 days later. Considering the circumstances, I was very pleased with the company and the product. Will definitely order more supplies from them if I need any.
This is my go-to yeast for fermenting fruit wines as it produces reliable fermentation, lets subtle nuances come forth and produces very little foam at all. I ferment at about 67∞F and haven't had one bad experience with Cotes des Blanc.
First time using this type yeast, making a small batch of hard cider. Seems to be working well so far. Time will tell after fermentation is over.
I am super-pleased with my order. You have top notch customer service. You guys are pretty far away from me, but you always ship super-fast. I recommended you to other hobbyists, even over local brew supply shops. You have the best customer service in the brewing industry. Keep it up!
