Since we know how serious you are as an enthusiast we got you on this one!  This fine speyside yeast provides you with a perfect distillate on grain and wheat based products.


Use it at a rest whiskey you can ratio of between 60g to 80g per 100L mash resulting in the best whiskey for you and you friends.  Advising you that you need to store in a cool dry place no hotter than 25 degrees ensures that your product can have up to a 3 year shelf life.

Your distilling temperature should be between 20 and 33 degree Celcius and this yeast displays a good alcohol tolerance of up to at least 15% V/V.


Restore this dried yeast to its fully active viable state by rehydrating it as quickly as possible leaving you speechless at the results.  Use 10 x the mass of water at 36 degrees Celcius and Bob’s your uncle!  Vigorously agitate so you get the best from it.  Watch the time though because if you don’t it can be bad for overall alcohol yields.
