Postby stlmalt » Thu Mar 06, 2014 10:51 am

I just received this from our friends at WYEAST-

New Vintner's Choice Strain Names for 2014

"Beginning Monday, March 10, you will notice a change to the names of our Vintner’s Choice yeast strains. We are updating our names for easier identification, moving away from European appellations and moving more toward their actual uses.

The name changes are as follows:

Former Name.................New Name
4021 Pasteur Champagne....4021 Dry White/Sparkling
4028 Chateau Red.............4028 Red
4134 Sake #9..................4134 Sake
4184 Sweet Mead............. 4184 Sweet Mead (no change)
4242 Chablis...................4242 Fruity White
4244 Chianti...................4244 Italian Red
4267 Bordeaux.................4267 Summation Red
4347 Eau de Vie...............4347 Extreme Fermentation
4632 Dry Mead................4632 Dry Mead (no change)
4766 Cider....................4766 Cider (no change)
4767 Port Wine...............4767 Dry/Fortified
4783 Rudisheimer............4783 Sweet White
4946 Zinfandel................4946 Bold Red/High Alcohol
4007 Malo Lactic..............4007 Malo Lactic Blend

This change is only to the names; the product ID numbers and the strains themselves (along with their fermentation profiles and properties) will remain exactly the same.

Please note the names for our cider, mead, and malo lactic cultures are not affected.

As we implement these changes in our packaging and on our website and informational materials, our priority as always is providing you with the freshest yeast cultures and best service possible."

Any customer feedback on the changes is certainly appreciated.
