Trying not to sound like I'm being short with you, but if you Googled "dry yeast" or "wine yeast", "Lalvin", or something along those lines you will get lots of lists of yeast and their characteristics.

I'd recommend highlighting the page, copy all and paste it into a word doc.

That's how I get lots of my info.

Long time brewer. New member.

This is my favorite yeast for show meads. It's reliable, quick, and creates no off flavors. It can ferment up to 18% alcohol so, if you like it sweet, you need to stabilize and back-sweeten or start with a lot of honey. I prefer the latter.

All the Best,
D. White
