5 of 5 Decent cider strain August 3, 2015
Reviewer: Jeff Thomson from Victoria, BC Canada  
I had a case of "past its prime" SunRype apple juice laying around, and of course I had to turn it into booze!

This yeast brought the juice from .051 to .000 with no issues whatsoever. I used crushed cinnamon and organic apple extract to boost the flavour, and backsweetened with xylitol prior to kegging.

It turned out better than expected. I will be using this yeast again!

5 of 5 First cider it's great June 4, 2015
Reviewer: David Logan from Kingston, ON Canada  
Well I decided it's summer, and keeping on trend with Molson I decided to try a cider.  Costco had sunrype on sale, and I had a pack of this in the fridge so why not!  2 weeks at 19 C and it is in my keg now.  It started around 1.056 and finished at 1.004.  Not champagne dry, but defiantly less sweet than store bought stuff. ( about half as dry as molson cider????

Give this stuff a try!  Also it say it can handle from like lager temps up 28C for fermenting worth getting to play around with
