Lalvin All Purpose (K1V-1116)
Selected by the Institut coopératif du vin in Montpellier among numerous killer strains isolated and studied by Pierre Barre at INRA, the K1V-1116 strain was the first competitive factor yeast to go into commercial production and has become one of the most widely used active dried wine yeasts in the world. Oenological properties and applications The K1V-1116 strain is a rapid starter with a constant and complete fermentation between 10° and 35°C (50° and 95°F), capable of surviving a number of difficult conditions, such as low nutrient musts and high levels of sulfur dioxide (SO2) or sugar. Wines fermented with the K1V-1116 have very low volatile acidity, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and foam production. The K1V-1116 strain tends to express the freshness of white grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Seyval. The natural fresh fruit aromas are retained longer than with other standard yeast strains. Fruit wines and wines made from concentrates poor in nutrient balance benefit from the capacity of K1V-1116 to adapt to difficult fermentation conditions. Restarts stuck fermentations. Highly recommended for dry whites, aged reds, and late harvest wines.

    Great yeast

    Review by on

    I use this yeast to make wine overseas when temperatures exceed 30oC and it ferments to dryness without problem.

    Low temperature ferment

    Review by on

    I bought my first sachet at a higher price elsewhere some time ago. I'm a lousy raw fruit wine maker. In winter my home inside low temperature has stopped a number ferments. I thought I'd try a yeast that is supposed to work at lower temperatures. This works as low as 10C, maybe below. Very low foam/bubbles too so I can get the demi-john filled properly at the start. It is fast. I'm not sure if it makes better tasting wine than other yeasts as I drink all my home-made booze far too early. Oh and it seems to better reduce the sweetness/sugar in a ferment for a really dry wine or if I wish to blend with a wine which I've made too sweet. I never use a starter bottle for the yeast. This works fine without and quickly
