Lalvin EC-1118 is the original ‘prise de mousse’. It was isolated in Champagne and its use is validated by the Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC). Its strong competitive character, its ability to ferment at low temperature, good flocculation and excellent alcohol tolerance, make Lalvin EC-1118 an excellent strain to be used in a wide range of applications (such as sparkling wines, fruit wines and ciders).

EC-1118 is the best all rounder for all wine styles in Australia due to its low ester production and high heat tolerance that deals well with the Australian summer heat.

We recommend fermenting EC-1118 between 22 and 28 degrees celsius for best results, lower fermentation temperatures can lead to a stalled ferment. This is particularly evident in low nutrient content wines.
