Lalvin EC-1118 Champagne Yeast 5g

LALVIN EC-1118 Dried Active Yeast

The EC-1118 strain is recommended for all types of wines, including sparkling, and late harvest wines, mead and cider.

If you could only choose one yeast to have in your cupboard, this would be the one.

Lalvin EC-1118 (Champagne Yeast)

(Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Bayanus)

It works well with brews that are “Grape Nutrient Deficient”.

In other words, wine made from fruit other than grapes. Cider, Mead, Country and Hedgerow Wines etc. because it doesn’t require much nutrient.

5g Sachets - Treats 4.5L-23L (1 to 5 Gallons)

Lalvin are probably the best yeast in the world. They are definitely the most popular yeast in the world.

EC-1118 is selected from Champagne fermentations in the Champagne Region. For this reason, it is often referred to as Champagne Yeast, but EC-1118 is actually a great all-rounder.

- High alcohol tolerance (18%)
- It can be used to restart stuck fermentations.
- It ferments very fast.
- It has a wide temperature range from 10° to 30°C (50° to 86°F)
- High osmotic tolerance
- Extremely low production of foam, volatile acid and hydrogen sulfide (H2S)
- Good flocculation with compact lees
- A relatively neutral flavour and aroma contribution.


The EC-1118 strain is recommended for all types of wines, including sparkling, and late harvest wines and cider.

    Having used champagne yeasts from other brands, this one really is the better of the dried yeasts. Nearing 19% ABV, just don't forget the nutrient!
