10 Packs Lalvin EC-1118 All Purpose Champagne Yeast

This listing is for 10 Packs Lalvin EC-1118 Champagne yeast with the perfect profile for fruit wines, ciders, cabernets, dry whites, ports, and, of course, sparkling wines. It is known for its FAST FERMENTATION SPEED and HIGH 18% ALCOHOL TOLERANCE. Works even in heavy sulfite concentrations. It is also Lalvin's primary yeast to restart stuck fermentations and naturally carbonate home-made soda. This is the original ‘PRISE DE MOUSSE’ yeast of ancient fame.

EC-1118 was isolated in Champagne, France and is a mixed-population culture. This means that perhaps there are more than one strain of yeasties in the package. It is common in sparkling wine production because of it induces fermentation quickly, is effective in low temperatures, and is tolerant of the high alcohol conditions common in sparkling wine production. Expect to get up to 18% alcohol.


EC-1118 Champagne yeast is our number one selling Lalvin yeast due to its versatility.
Lalvin rates EC-1118 Champagne yeast as it's very best yeast for Cider, Fresh Fruits, Late Harvest grapes, Secondary Fermentation (Champagne), Champagne base, and restarting Stuck Fermentations. It is also very good for Dry Whites and Aged Reds, so-so for Nouveau and blush wines.


If you are making Champagne, do not start with Champagne yeast. First make a good quality dry wine, then ferment a second time with Red Star Pasteur Champagne yeast. EC-1118 can be used in a temperature range of 50-86°.
