Sensory Profile

Fresco imparts a bright apple character with notes of red apple, pear and citrus with a refreshing crisp finish.  The fermentation will not produce any rotten egg aromas because this yeast strain is incapable of Hydrogen Sulfide H2S production.

 

Other Noteworthy Characteristics

This specially developed cider yeast is a non-GMO saccharomyces bayanus strain from Renaissance Yeast that cannot produce hydrogen sulfide.  It is recommended for all types of ciders, and especially for beginning hobbyists who may not yet be familiar with yeast nutrition protocols.

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.
