Custom Fermentation Packages
Our expert award-winning winemaking staff has created convenient custom fermentation packages with their recommended yeast and nutrients for each variety of our Chilean, Australian, California, and Italian Juice pails. Select your appropriate starter packet below to go with your juice pail variety and you're off to the races to make a great wine of your own creation! Varietal recommendations are listed in each packet's product info page. Many of these premium yeasts are usually only available in larger winery sizes so these packets are a unique opportunity for the home winemaker to get these yeasts affordably.
If you prefer to select your own yeasts, we recommend you refer to our convenient Yeast Selection Chart for guidance and suggestions. Yeast selection is one of the most important decisions in the winemaking process. The yeast strain you use will determine the style of wine you create, as well as the characteristics that the wine may take on. To determine the best yeast to be used, you should match the yeast strain with the grape or fruit juice variety, consider the desired style of wine, and identify the environmental conditions that the yeast will work under.
Presque Isle Wine Cellars' Yeast Selection Chart is a great place to start in determining which yeast strain you should use to achieve the desired style and quality of wine. If you still have questions on which yeast strain to use, please contact us, and we will be more than happy to help you to choose a strain that will be most likely to help you create the wine you have in mind.
