Will red star primier blanc yeast work for a recipe using strawberries and rhubarb? I also have ec 1118 but id rather use my old yeast first and save my ec 1118 for dragons blood.

1118 and Premier Blanc are both Champagne yeasts I believe, they are aggressive yeasts. Why not try RC-212? This is a good 'berry' yeast, anyone else's thoughts?

K1V-1116 is a really good fruit wine yeast, and I’ve read here that on of our big rhubarb wine makers swears by 71B, food for thought......

Well. The reason for the two choices is because thats what i have. I could throw the fruit back in the freezer if either one wont work and order somthing else.

2 day shipping from amazon. I can still start it today and the yeast will arrive right when i need it.

Oh, NP, they'll work, but some of these other yeasts will yield different flavors. (I still STRONGLY advise the Campden tablets before you start.) - sorry, Mixed posts, someone else that I replied to.
