Original sparkling wine strain

Lalvin EC1118™ is the original, steady, low-foamer yeast strain. This Saccharomyces cerevisiae bayanus strain was selected by the IOC in Epernay, France and is the reference strain for sparkling base wine. It is an excellent choice for secondary fermentations of sparkling wine.

Ferments well at low temperatures and flocculates with compact lees. Under low nutrient conditions EC1118 can produce high amounts of SO2 (up to 50 ppm) and, as a result, may inhibit malolactic fermentation.
