Yeasts

Fermentis Safoeno Yeast

The result of experience and expertise in the production and the drying of yeast and yeast derivatives, Easy-2-Use™ is a range of yeasts, nutrients and functional products that are designed to facilitate fermentation operations and save time during harvest.

 

Our 7 Easy-2-Use™ yeast strains have been intensively tested to insure viability, fermentation abilities and organoleptic profiles uniformity with all types of rehydration procedure (normal rehydration, cold or hot water, direct inoculation in the must). Those who have tried Easy-2-Use™ yeasts will never look back!
