Am I correct after reading several "threads" that my fruit wines will lose the yeasty taste after time and several rackings? This is my first year so I cant wait until next fall to try some of my fruit wines.

If you have a yeasty taste there will be some yeast floating
in your wine. They might give a taste.

It will dissappear in due time while all
floating materials will settle and you have
racked subsequent times from the 'lees'.

I need to say that I only make fruit wines
and almost never experience a yeast taste.

What kind of yeast are you using ???
Maybe that gives us a clue.

I guess i haven't been as efficient or as detailed as I should have been as I have not recorded the brand or "type" of yeast I have used. My supplier has been rather casual about which yeast i use, tho I know it has been specific to a Red or a White wine. I have been buying the yeast only as I need it and using whatever yeast product he recommeded that particular day. Redstar and lavar or lavell ?? sp? come to mind.
