S. cerevisiae • blend
Scientifically formulated blend of wine yeast strains developed in collaboration with the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) in South Australia.
Alchemy I is a strong aroma producer with fast fermentation kinetics. It is low foaming and has low to medium nitrogen requirements.
Barrel fermentation is not recommended and temperature control is advised.
The ratio of the yeast in the blend has been formulated to provide an optimal aromatic profile. Alchemy I enhances esters (fruity, floral) and volatile thiols (boxwood, passion fruit, grapefruit and guava aromas).
Also good for cider.
