I just juiced 15 lbs of pears, strained out the pulp and have a gallon of pear juice. I added a campton tablet to sterilize.

I 24 hours I plan to pitch the yeast. Question is which one should I pitch? I have on hand the following:

Nottingham
D47
Ec-118
and Montrachet (sp?)

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks

If you're talking just pear juice, and not adding much sugar, I say go for the nottingham. I still contend that ciders/perrys should be made with ale yeasts.
