Sold in a 100 g vacuum sealed bag

Active dry yeast strain that has been specially selected for use in sugar fermentations. Effective for the fermentation of sugar cane and sugar beet products, including juice, molasses and mixed substrates

Product features
Exhibits a short lag phase and demonstrates a tolerance to high osmotic pressure. It also shows good resistance to the Maillard reaction byproducts found in molasses that inhibit the activities of many yeast strains. A producer of low levels of fusel oils, it is well-suited to the production of neutral cane and neutral beet spirits, as well as light rums.


Can be used for batch and semi-continuous fermentations. Produces low levels of higher alcohols, making it a good choice for production of neutral spirits and light spirits from sugar substrates.

Directions for use
It is recommended to rehydrate the yeast before utilization. To rehydrate, add yeast to a 10 X volume of fresh water at 40°C, then stir and allow to stand for 15 minutes. Pitching rates will depend on the process, but generally range between 10 and 50g/hl. Temperature should be between 30°C to 35°C.
