Lalvin BRL97 Wine Yeast
Very Satisfied
The yeast was fresh and had an expiration date of Dec 2018 (I purchased in Oct 2016). Fermentation hummed along as expected. Delivery was on date promised. Very satisfied with purchasing from Presque Isle Wine. I was able to call to discuss the order before placing it online. They were knowledgeable and friendly. This was my first purchase from them and certainly not my last.

good yeast
Seems to be working very well on Chilean Merlot and Carmenere juice witha a brix of 22. Fermentation is a a lower level than others I have used but seems to be strong.
