Why bread yeast over champagne yeast? Doesn't bread yeast tend to leave a bad taste?

Also, wouldn't boiling the yeast kill them?

He's referring to boiling bread yeast and throwing it in as nutrients for the champagne yeast... Its an alternative to buying yeast nutrients

Awesome idea! Bread yeast seems much cheaper than yeast nutrient.... Maybe I'll just do that. Also will champagne yeast be fine with this, or would it be beneficial to get something better.

www.skeeterpee.com. Follow the instructions. This stuff is awesome and easy. If you don't have a yeast cake just use some red star premier cuvée and rehydrate it with the must for a couple of days. Simple, cheap, and good.

I have made my first cider. Remember, I don't like beer; my first beer was a Russian Imperial Ale for my husband. But I do like cider. I read a lot of recipes. I watched a lot of YouTube. Then I went to the store. There is a great orchard just a Ross the rive from us, but isn't quite time for cider yet. I went to my grocery store. I bought apple juice. Two bottles, each three quarts. I used yeast from my local shop, My Old Kentucky Homebrew! I can't remember what kind of yeast, but he will know. I put them both into my small three gallon glass carboy, airlock on and watched and waited. It was fairly active for about four to five days. I waited five more and bottled it. I do like it. It is a bit drier that I really prefer, but I still like it. My cider loving friend said (several times) that it tastes just like Crispin to her, her favorite! So - success!! Personally I am finding a yeast smell from it. Is this a bad thing, and immature state of the cider, or just the way it is. I only used half the package of yeast since I was only making two and a half gallons.
