Blog » Hints for Youngs Yeast

  • Ale Yeast - A true top formenting yeast with vigorous fermentation characteristics. Promotes rich, full flavoured English styled ales with a clean, smooth texture. Produces firm, heavy sediment, so ideal for bottle conditioning.
  • Cider Yeast - Bayanus strain specially selected for its ability to produce crisp and refreshing ciders.
  • Lager Yeast - A true bottom-fermenting lager yeast that produces flavour characteristics consistent with quality lager.
  • All Purpose White - Produces white or blush wines which are exceptionally crisp and clean. Also suitable for cold ferments down to 7 degrees C.
  • Bordeaux White - Confers exceptional depth and complexity to white wines - perfect for Bordeaux (dry style) wines.
  • All Purpose Red - For red wines which are well rounded and full of fruit flavours - suitable for any style of red wine.
  • Bordeaux Red - To improve body and confer soft fruit flavours to red wines - perfect for Bordeaux style reds.
  • Burgundy Red - Confers depth and complexity to red wines - perfect for burgundy style reds.
  • Re-Start Yeast - For re-starting stuck fermentations. High success rate where the wine is below 8% ABV and within pH ranges 3.0-3.5.
