If you are making moonshine mash or just generating some CO2 this is good stuff for pushing the alcohol level way above 14%. It ferments fast, even faster if you stack it by using multiple packs and is one of the strains included with many turbo yeasts.
Red Star Pasteur Champagne yeast was isolated in Champagne, France and is a mixed-population culture. This means that perhaps there are more than one strain of yeasties in the package. It is common in sparkling wine production because of it induces fermentation quickly, is effective in low temperatures, and is tolerant of the high alcohol conditions common in sparkling wine production. Expect to get up to 16% or alcohol or even higher if you ‘feed sugar’. Pasteur Champagne yeast works in temperature range 59-86°.
