Gervin GV10 - Light Sparkling Wine Yeast (Rose, Dessert, Champagne)
Gervin Light Sparkling Wine Yeast GV10
This is one of the most popular wine yeasts in the world and is said to be involved in the production of 70% of Champagne.
We recommend this yeast for making sparkling wines, dessert wines and for restarting "stuck" ferments.
It ferments well at low temperatures, flocculates well and is an excellent choice for making white & rose table wines.
This 5gm sachet is sufficient for up to 23 Litres - simply sprinkle the contents of the sachet onto the surface of your brew.
ABV Tolerance: 18.5% | Temperature: 15 - 25c | Strain: S. Cerevisiae, EC1118
Making a Yeast Starter
- Add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and the contents of the sachet to a glass with about 50ml of warm water. (approx. 20 °C)
- Cover the glass with a clean plate and simply leave for 15-20 minutes.
- Before you empty the glass of yeast into your brew we recommend vigorously stirring your cider/beer/wine.
- The more oxygen introduced before you put the yeast on will promote a strong healthy fermentation.
