Still Spirits Distiller's Yeast - Rum 20g

Distilling rum takes skill, patience and process control at every step so why would you ever compromise selecting quality, fresh ingredients with every batch?

Using this yeast will help you to achieve a well rounded fermentation with character that will shine through in the final beverage.

It's simple. It all comes down to ingredient selection and process. 

If you're a real rum enthusiast, start here by selecting a yeast that will help you make rums of distinction, dark or light, and ferments well on sugars, treacle, molasses and/or cane juice up to 15%ABV.  

An active dried yeast specially selected for rum, this strain has fantastic attenuation and a beautiful, smooth, neutral pressence when using a pot still for your spirit production.

Sufficient for up to 25 L (6.6 US Gal) fermentation.

Add directly to the fermentation vessel and leave to ferment at 20-34°C (68-93°F) ambient air temperature for optimum performance and quality.

Dry Yeast Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find the questions we get asked the most regarding our dry yeasts.
Please click on one of the questions below to see the answer.

Dry Yeast Usage

Is it recommended to rehydrate dry yeast?

A big part of homebrewing comes down to what works best for you and also following producers' recommendations. We would encourage you to read instructions before use.

Do I need to rehydrate the yeast before pitching?

Typically, dry yeasts do not need to be rehydrated before use and can be pitched directly into our fermenters. However, some brewers prefer to rehydrate dry yeasts as they think it speeds up the start of fermentation.

How do I rehydrate dry yeast?

To rehydrate yeast, simply add around 300ml of lukewarm water to a sanitised conatainer, and add the content of the packet then cover with a layer of tin foil. You will notice that after an hour or so, the yeast will start to buble and activate.

Storage Recommendation

How do I store my dry yeast?

Store in the fridge or dry and cool place.

How long can I store my dry yeast for?

Dry yeast can be stored for extended periods of time. Please refer to the package for the best before date.
