Wyeast 4766 Cider Yeast is a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain that's well-suited for cider making. It's known for producing a crisp and dry ferment with a big, fruity finish, creating a nice balance for all types of apples, pears, and other fruits. This yeast allows the fruit character to dominate the flavor profile, making it an excellent choice for various cider styles, including New World Cider, English Cider, French Cider, and more. The yeast has a temperature range of 60-75°F (16-24°C) and an alcohol tolerance of 12%.

For flavoring ideas, consider adding spices like cinnamon, cloves, or nutmeg to your cider for a warm, spiced character. You can also experiment with fruit additions such as berries, cherries, or peaches for added complexity. Another option is to co-ferment with other fruits like pears or to blend the finished cider with fruit juices for a sweeter, fruit-forward profile. For a more adventurous twist, try adding herbs like rosemary or thyme, or even floral elements like hibiscus or lavender. The possibilities are endless, so feel free to get creative and tailor your cider to your taste preferences.
