This strain has a wide & flexible fermentation temperature range of 50-86ºF. This means you can ferment delicious hard apple ciders year-round in warm or cool weather. This cider yeast also has low nitrogen requirements, meaning it doesn't require added yeast nutrient (nitrogen) for an efficient fermentation.
