HASH(0x99904900) out of 5 stars A good bargain 31 May 2013

As you will see more than one description of Lalvin yeasts this is a work horse yeast, it lives up to its name.

I had a batch of malbec grape juice arrive early and was in a pinch of yeast, I had no time to get anything that couldn't be drop shipped next day. So I decided to go with something dependable and on the shelf.

I didn't put this yeast in a starter, I rehydrated it and dumped it in with a bit of nutrients. This accounts for the slow start but no matter what the temp was (my better half abhors climate control) these little beasties chugged away.

If you are looking for something that will always get the job done Lalvin is a good bet, your product will be consistent and worry free.

Happy drinking.
