View Table of Contents Yeast Strains For Hard Seltzer


Gusmer is pleased to introduce interesting and unique strains of yeast that have proven to be strong tools in the production of premium beverages. As a supplier of yeast to the alcoholic beverage industry for decades, Gusmer has many strains of specialized yeast that were selected for their abilities to perform alcoholic fermentations and make positive contributions to the organoleptic profile. We provide yeast strains with proven kinetics and the ability to produce aromatic and mouthfeel constituents, or the inability to produce certain negative metabolites – such as hydrogen sulfide. We work exclusively with Chr. Hansen and Renaissance Yeast, two leaders in the production of yeast for the beverage industry. Renaissance Yeast is a leader in the development of classical crossbred (non-GMO) H 2 S-preventing Saccharomyces yeast, based on a unique strain of yeast, UCD932, that was recently isolated by the University of California, Davis which is naturally incapable of producing hydrogen sulfide. Renaissance has developed a full range of yeasts bred specifically for their favorable fermentation attributes in hard seltzer. Each strain has a proven lineage, and is metabolically incapable of producing hydrogen sulfide. Hydrogen sulfide, even at levels below threshold, binds delicate aromas. Hard seltzer, produced with Renaissance Saccharomyces strains, that contain no hydrogen sulfide are bright, clean and have outstanding aromas. Renaissance Yeast
