Distilamax RM & SR Yeasts - Dosage Levels

Postby JayTee » Tue Jul 03, 2018 5:36 pm

Hi,

All my rum to this point has used bakers yeast (similar to Lowans, but we can't get Lowans in the UK). I'm getting really good results, but I'm going to play around a bit to see what effects different yeast makes.

I've got my hands on a couple of packets of Distilamax RM (493 edv) and Distilamax SR. I've been looking at the tech sheets and it says dosage is "50g/hl" i.e. about 13g in a 25L ferment. As I'm used to putting in 80g of bakers yeast, I'm wondering if this sounds right.

Here's the tech sheet for RM (SR is very similar):

Has anyone used either of these yeasts please?

Totally correct.
Yeast will multiply to suit a favourable environment.

a 5g pack of EC1118 will happily work a 25 litre wash.

Most bakers yeast will expand and convert a 25l wash from a 20 to 25g starter

Good news! Thanks Teddysad. The yeast is better value than I realised then :-)
