Description

Good flocculation and a neutral flavor and aroma. This is a strain that is popular because of its strong fermentation characteristics and lack of problems. Can be used in a wide range of wines including most red wines, sparkling wines and late harvest version where the alcohol tolerance is a perfect fit. Ferments from 45 to 95 degrees with an alcohol tolerance of 18%. Not a great choice for wine that will be seeing a malolactic fermentation as EC-1118 naturally produces higher levels of SO2 which can inhibit malo-lactic fermentations.

80g pack
Please be aware that if you order the 80g quantity it comes in one 80g mylar bag, and recommends a 6 month window to use it after opening. (so you need to make 50 gallons of wine in 6 months if you buy the 80g pack)

I had in my head that it was a discount price on 10 8g packs but I realize that was my incorrect assumption not the fault of the company.

Mentioning this so other people don't make the same mistake I did.
