Gervin GV11 Red Fruit Wine Yeast is a German strain of yeast which has two particular characteristics.

The first is that it produces quality red wines with a fruity character and an excellent bouquet which mature quickly and the second is that it can metabolise up to 35% of any malic acid present in the must. This second characteristic makes it very useful when the fruit base of wine may be overly acidic and so it is an excellent choice when making wines from red fruits such as blackberries or elderberries.

This 5gm sachet is sufficient for 40 pints (23 Litres). Simply sprinkle the contents of the sachet onto the surface of the prepared wine 'must' at room temperature, there is no need to stir.

Gervin is the brand name for the yeast sachets produced by Muntons the country’s leading (and main) maltster and producer of most beer kits sold in the UK as well as many wine kits. As a result the quality of these Gervin yeasts is excellent. They are used worldwide by both the professional and amateur winemaker and will always produce a top quality result.
