Product details

LALVIN EC1118™ is the original and is good for barrel fermentations. It ferments well at low temperatures and flocculates well with very compact lees. Under low nutrient conditions, LALVIN EC1118™ produces a lot of SO2 (up to 30 ppm) and as a result can inhibit malolactic fermentation. It is classified as a Saccharomyces cerevisiae bayanus.

Selected by Isolated in the famous French region of high-quality sparkling wine
