Default Pasteur Red?

Anyone ever use Pasteur Red in a mead? Was thinking about whipping up a batch and only have that and K1V on hand. I know K1V goes on forever and forever. But Pasteur Red stops at around 13.

I've never used Pasteur Red, but you might find the info on it (and more) at the following 2 links useful... Winemaking: Strains of Wine Yeast Wine & Mead Yeasts Regards, GF.

I have a cherry melomel bulk aging right now that was made with Pastuer Red. I picked the fresh cherries and wanted something a little different than the Lalvin yeasts I normally use. The chart lists Pastuer Red specifically for cherries and I've used it successfully in wines so I can't help but think it would work as well with a dark red mead.
