Wyeast Laboratories, Inc. produces a variety of Pure Liquid YeastTM cultures for production of sweet and dry mead, metheglin, braggot, cyser, melamel, and pyment. The strains recommended for use in fermentation of all varieties of mead are typically wine yeast strains, however, some ale strains are also appropriate. Since honey, even more so than grape must, is deficient in nutrients essential to proper yeast cell growth and metabolism, additional Wyeast Vintner’s Choice Nutrient Blend is recommended.
Award-winning home and professional mead makers have discovered the “Pure Liquid Yeast DifferenceTM” in the flavor, aroma and overall quality of their beverages.
“If it’s good for ancient Druids, runnin’ nekkid through the wuids, drinkin’ strange fermented fluids, it’s good enough for me!”- Pete Seeger
