White Labs 740 Merlot Red Wine Yeast


Neutral character, with low fusel-alcohol production. Ferments dry.

**This strain has been genetically typed and determined WLP740 Merlot Red Wine Yeast to contain the STA1 gene (glucoamylase), a potential indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus. Brewers yeast are natural hybrids, which make it possible for certain strains to display elements of the STA1 gene. These strains have the ability to utilize some dextrins (unfermentable sugars), resulting in higher levels of attenuation than what is considered typical.

Attenuation: 80% – 100%
Flocculation: Low
Alcohol Tolerance: Very High (Over 15%)
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 60°F – 90°F
