    I have been using this yeast for 8 years and it has never let me down. I use 4 sacks per fifty five gallon mash and i get 16 percent out of it .no nasty smell the hearts are 160 proof and are very smooth. I filter and age the hearts and poeple say its better that gentleman jack. So that is impressive.

    Have been using for many years processing corn whiskey. "Age" for 3 weeks in char-coaled oak (red or white) filings then filter. Smooth sweet result loved by all that try

    Been using this yeast for many years with consistent results. Have tried other cheaper brands with bad results. I believe in this case you get what you pay for, I'll continue to use this product.
