Description

Lalvin - EC-1118 Yeast x 5g (Champagne / Cider Yeast)

Lalvin EC-1118 is the original ‘prise de mousse’. It was isolated in Champagne and its use is validated by the Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC).

Its strong competitive character, its ability to ferment at low temperature, good flocculation and excellent alcohol tolerance, make Lalvin EC-1118 an excellent strain to be used in a wide range of applications (such as sparkling wines, fruit wines and ciders).

Dosage
White, red and rosé winemaking: 25 to 40 g/hl
Secondary bottle fermentation: 50 g/hl
To restart stuck fermentation: 40 g/hl

Note: dosage range is based on the must sugar content and sanitary state of the grapes and winery.


How to Use
Rehydrate Lalvin EC-1118 in 5 times its weight of potable water at 40°C. Let stand for at least 20 minutes then gently stir occasionally to break up any clumps. Add to the must.

Notes:
– The total rehydration duration should never exceed 45 minutes
– Avoid cold shocking the yeast. the temperature drop between the must to be inoculated and the rehydration medium should never be above 10°c (in case of doubt, please contact your supplier or Lallemand)
– It is essential to rehydrate the yeast in a clean container.
– Initial rehydration in must is not advisable.

Brewing Properties
In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at 20°C (68°F) LalBrew® London yeast exhibits:
Vigorous fermentation that can be completed in 3 days
Medium attenuation and Low flocculation
Neutral to slightly fruity and estery flavor and aroma, allowing Malt aromas and flavors to shine through
The optimal temperature range for LalBrew® London yeast when producing traditional styles is 18°C(65°F) to 22°C(72°F)
LalBrew® London does not utilize the sugar maltotriose (a molecule composed of 3 glucose units).
Maltotriose is present in wort in an average 10-15% of all malt worts. The result will be fuller body and residual sweetness in beer. Be advised to adjust gravities and mash temperatures according
to desired result.
Fermentation rate, fermentation time and degree of attenuation are dependent on inoculation density, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort.
