WLP 720 - Sweet Mead/Wine Yeast
WLP720 Sweet Mead Wine Yeast is a versatile strain that can be used for fermenting a variety of alcoholic drinks.
Primarily tailored for producing wine and mead, this strain is characterized by lower attenuation and high alcohol tolerance, producing drinks with a significant amount of residual sugars. As a result, the yeast performs really well when making Cider, Mead, Wine, Braggot, Cyser, and even certain beer styles that are on the sweeter side of the spectrum.
Moreover, WLP720 can also be used in distilling for producing Rum and Brandy, making it an all-round fermenter for a variety of alcoholic beverages that require high levels of residual sugars.
|Description||WLP720 Sweet Mead Wine Yeast is fairly simple to work with, as it ferments quite fast even when dealing with high gravity drinks, and allows prolonged maturation for obtaining very interesting results.
Attenuation is medium for this strain, especially if compared to other common wine and mead yeasts that tend to produce dry and highly attenuated beverages.
This way, WLP720 helps to emphasize the raw materials used in the production of the drink, as their character carries through into the final product with the residual sugars not processed by the yeast.
