  • What buyers say about Red Star Dady 9804 Distillers Active Dry Yeast


    This is a great product to make a sugarcane/honey meade in 1 gal size, it's easy to make, and it doesn't require directions, so you'll have to play with it til you get everything right.


    I brew under a gallon and finding a good yeast can be difficult, but with just 4 grams of yeast and fruit sugar blue agave, I produced a perfect brew that released lots of gases and time will tell if it brew this wine good.


    I decided to give it a try after I realized it was $10 and it would work great, I drink it while it still bubbling and it tastes great.


    I made a sugar wash and ferment it with this yeast to make sure the smell wasn't coming from my grain mash, and it turned out to be a sulfur smell again.


    I keep it in the freezer for long term storage, and it never had an issue, even though I haven't tried it in beer.
