Fresco cider yeast from Renaissance Yeast has been designed specifically for Cider. Fresco is a strain developed to be incapable of Hydrogen Sulfide H2S production while producing aromas of red apple, pear and citrus.

Fresco Yeast is non-GMO. It was bred naturally without the ability to produce hydrogen sulfide, the rotten egg smell which can mask or ruin the fruit aroma in your wine. For Cider production, it is recommended for New World, English, French, Perry, Ice, New England, Apple Wine, and Fruit Ciders. Wines and Ciders produced without H2S are considered to be more “open and bright” in the absence of sulfurous aromatics.

Background: UC Davis's researcher Linda Bisson identified naturally occuring yeasts incapable of producing H2S---in this case strain UCD932 isolated in Italy. Through natural breeding programs they have developed new strains, crossing these non-GMO no-H2S strains with other yeasts known for desirable characteristics, and resulting in a new selection of winemaking yeast choices. The Beverage People is happy to provide cider and perry makers access to this new strain.

Great experience
I used this on 4 batches of dry sparkling cider last year. No sulphur issues. I like that it brings a bit of subtle apple/pear complexity, but its subtle. I am using it on everything this year because its reliable and mostly neutral. I think my only criticism is that the finish could be longer but that is me being really really picky. Awesome yeast for cider and I think it will work well for hydromels.
