most used wine yeast
i know there is no standard but what is the most used/useful wine yeast to have on hand?
been to the same place 2 times and asked the same question to 2 different people one gave me d-47 and the other gave me premier couvee.
would like to keep a stock on hand. looking for what to stock up on, mainly be making fruit wines..
I use mostly Lalvin EC 1118. Unless there is a reason (excess malic acid, for example) to use a different strain, I tend to grab that yeast.
There is no single best wine yeast but I generally keep all of the following in my fridge. I really couldn't choose a single best since reds and whites, at a minimum, require different yeasts. I can pick my absolute favorite "go to" yeasts, though.
**COTE de BLANC
i figured as much that reds and whites would do best with different strains.
just trying to get an idea of what others use as their go to's..
summersolstice what are the ** for?
I would add Montrachet to that list.
