Most mead makers use wine yeasts when fermenting mead. Frank Golbeck and Maurey Fletcher from Golden Coast Mead will detail their experience fermenting mead with ale yeast. Golden Coast Mead uses ale yeast in their four major market mead varieties sold in more than 200 retail locations. They find many advantages in doing so, including more consistent flavor profile, more reliable fermentation times, and more refreshing body and finish. They will detail their discovery process, production process and findings including fermentation kinetics, cell counts and more.
