Yeast for Winemaking and for Homebrew

Yeast for Wine kits, restarting wine. Home brew country wines or just about anything winemaking!

There's lots of yeast available, the same yeasts have different names. Champagne yeasts might be called sparkling or restart yeast. We've tried to say which yeast is best for what!   If you need a yeast for your home brew kit the Gervin Gv1  will do the job!

If all you need is one yeast or a couple of light items that we can put in the envelope, you can pack the cash in a bit of cardboard and put it in a thick envelope, please put two first class stamps on the one to us. Then send us  a SAE and post it to us with the money. If you are sending notes or cheque, 1 stamp would be sufficient. - don't forget to tell us which yeast you want! We'll post it back by return.
