Anchor and ScottLabs Yeast Comparison in Merlot (2014)

ScottLabs EC 1118 PDM, ScottLabs CRVP, Anchor NT50, and Anchor NT202 yeast strains were compared for their effect on pH, ethanol and volatile acidity production in 2014 Merlot.  Fermentation kinetics were also compared.  CRVP exhibited the fastest fermentation kinetics but produced the highest volatile acidity. EC 1118 PDM produced the highest ethanol and lowest volatile acidity.
