Pinnacle Distillers Yeast (S) is an active dry yeast well-suited for use in batch and continuous fermentations of molasses and pure sugars. It has a high tolerance to early residual sugars. This workhorse strain has a neutral profile and ferments very quickly. In addition to rum, it works quite well for hard seltzer.
This yeast product has optimal performance within a pH range of 4.0 to 5.0 but can ferment well in the range of 3.5 to 6.0. Optimal fermentation temperature is dependent on other stresses present (i.e. organic acid, ethanol and pH) but generally ferments well in the range of 92-98°F (33-37°C). Under various process conditions, this yeast can produce high ethanol titres under a broad range of applications and substrate type.
Directions for Use:
Yeast can be added directly to a fermenter at a dose rate of between 1.67-4.17 lbs per 1,000 gallons of wort (0.2-0.5 kg per 1,000L of wort).
Store in a cool, dry place. Product should be used within three years of its production date for best performance. Packages which have lost their vacuum seal should not be used. Opened packages can be stored cool and used within 3-4 days.
All yeast conforms to current local regulations.
Pinnacle Distillers Yeast began its life more than 30 years ago within the Scotch whisky sector. Over time, their yeast has become a well-established essential ingredient in the making of some of the finest award-winning malt and grain whiskies we are drinking today – not only in Scotland but around the world. In response to the growth of global spirits using many different substrates and a variety of multiple-sized, challenging processes, the family of Pinnacle Distillers Yeast has grown and is still increasing to meet future market demands.
