EC-1118 brings great flocculation and a neutral flavor and aroma profile to the table. This is a strain that is popular because of its strong fermentation characteristics and general lack of problems. Can be used in a wide range of wines including most red wines, sparkling wines and late harvest version where the alcohol tolerance needs to be a bit higher.

Ferments anywhere from 45 to 95 degrees with an alcohol tolerance of 18%. Not recommended for wines that will undergo a malolactic fermentation.

Commonly known as "the champagne strain".  Please note that this is a 'KILLER' strain, which means it does not play well with most other yeast strains, so plan accordingly.
