Origin:
The EC-1118 strain was isolated, studied and selected from Champagne fermentations. Due to its competitive factor and ability to ferment equally well over a wide temperature range, the EC-1118 is one of the most widely used yeasts in the world.

Oenological properties:
The fermentation characteristics of the EC-1118 extremely low production of foam, volatile acid and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) make this strain an excellent choice. This strain ferments well over a very wide temperature range, from 10 to 30C (50 to 86F) and demonstrates high osmotic and alcohol tolerance. Good flocculation with compact lees and a relatively neutral flavor and aroma contribution are also properties of the EC-1118.

Applications:
The EC-1118 strain is recommended for all types of wines, including sparkling, and late harvest wines and cider.

It may also be used to restart stuck fermentations.

My Go To Non-Beer Yeast 11/14/2014
By ncbluedot
I love this yeast! Cider, fruit wines, whatever I want fermented this is my go to yeast. Clean and dry with good tolerance to high temperature and high gravity. Lastly you can't go wrong with the price. Highly recommended.
