Looking for extra yeast for making wine? Try Lallemand Lalvin K1-V1116 Yeast, used for fermenting traditional grape wines or fruit wines. It's well suited for making aromatic red wine, white wine or sparkling wine. 

Lalvin K1-V1116 Yeast is quick to start & a vigorous fermenter. It's known for producing high levels of floral esters, which can be enhanced when fermented at temperatures below 60ºF. K1-V1116 yeast is a great choice for juices that are neutral or that lack complexity on their own. 

This resilient yeast strain performs well in difficult fermentation conditions and in extreme temperatures (as low as 50ºF or as high as 95ºF). Its alcohol tolerance allows you to craft wines up to 18% ABV. 

This packet of active dry yeast ferments a 1 - 6 gallon batch of wine or fruit cider. Lalvin recommends rehydrating yeast in 50 mL of water for 20 minutes before pitching.
