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.

Yeasts for cider
Overall this was a good experience but I was a bit disappointed at having to wait. My mistake as I waited until I had the juice before looking for yeast - I guess I was expecting to pretty much just walk in - so I was freaking out about the possibility of native yeasts getting established before I could prevent it. The pickup in the trailer was good - very few people around on the Sunday morning, a paper bag with my receipt and the yeast easily identified in a plastic bag in the cooler.
