Italian Redi has a rich profile with nice soft fruit character with a dry crisp finish. A great choice for most Italian grape varieties. The Smack Pack System™ provides optimum conditions for storage, while providing proof of healthy yeast ready for inoculation of 6 gallons of must, juice, wort or seed mash .

WYEAST Italian Red packages include sterile liquid nutrient pouch that, when “smacked”, releases its contents into the yeast slurry and “activates” the package. The available nutrients initiate the culture’s metabolism which in turn generates CO2 and causes swelling of the package. This process will reduce lag times by preparing the yeast for a healthy fermentation prior to inoculation.
