What is your favorite yeast for pear wine? I'm getting ready to start a batch of pear wine (Bartlett pears from the freezer). Among the yeasts I have on hand, I am considering D-47 or K1V-1116. In the past I have used EC-1118 for pear wine, but I think a different yeast might preserve more of the pear flavor. Many beginner recipes recommend EC-1118 because it is mostly foolproof, but it tends to drive off the esters of the fruit flavor.
