Fresco 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. 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.
USAGE RATE IS 1-2 GRAMS PER GALLON OF JUICE/MUST.

DON'T FORGET NUTRIENTS! Yeast require nutrition for successful completion and to avoid undesirable fermentation byproducts such as the rotten egg smell of Hydrogen Sulfide. Please be sure you are stocked with Fermaid K and DAP (Diammonium Phosphate). Our Guidance on selecting an appropriate nutrient program is here.
