Take any good 100% juice that is preservative free or organic and make it better in a week or two.
Recommended candidates are Apple, Grape both red and white, Cherry, Peach, Raspberry You get the idea.
The nice thing is the juice comes with a the secondary fermenter.

Store extra yeast packets in the freezer.
Let them slowly come to room temperature before use.

Its Easy.
You will need

A packet of magic juice enhancer - Red Star Champagne Yeast

2 Quart bottle of 100% juice that is preservative free or organic.

A primary fermenter
I use a cleaned and sanitized 1 gallon milk or water jug.
Using the larger container minimizes the chances of a blow off mess.
Its disposable so no need to clean after use.

A drilled rubber stopper or bung that fits the jug

A three peace air lock

A Secondary fermenter.
The rinsed and saved bottle the juice came in sanitize before reusing.

A drilled rubber stopper or bung that fits the juice bottle

The same air lock.

A length of clear 3/8" vinyl tubing

A dark place.

Patients.

1. Rehydrate yeast.
See packet instructions - 1/2 cup warm water.
Watch for a few little bubbles to form.

2. pour juice in to the cleaned and sanitized 1 gallon jug airrating as you go
Only at the beginning introducing oxygen is a good thing from now on should be avoided.

3. pitch yeast - pour it in the juice gently shake to mix.

4. plug the jog with the cleaned and sanitized bung and filled airlock.
You can use water in the air lock but I prefer to use vodka as it prevents growth of unwanted little beasties.

I decided to make a batch of hard apple cider or apfelwein after reading about it on the internet. Used: 2 gallons of store-bought apple juice (no preservatives, made from concentrate), 2 pounds of table sugar, raisin juice (as a yeast nutrient) and one packet of red star champagne yeast. The batch started bubbling at 24 hours and at 14 days, the fermentation was complete. Not a great flavor profile, but I guess that depends on the quality of the fruit pulp that you put in. The yeast did its job very effectively. I was aiming for at least 12% ABV and the yeast managed to that, in 14 days. Pretty impressive. Since it is a wine yeast, it doesn't leave behind too much of a mess in the primary. Highly recommend this product if you are learning to brew wine at home.

Just finished my first batch of hard cider. Yeast did a great job. Price was right and it got here in an instant. Seeing that I will continue making hard cider till my intervention, I will certainly buy from Red Star again.

The Red Star Champagne yeast is very similar to the Lavin EC-1118 yeast. Both are fast fermenting. I have used both brands in making rootbeer. After leaving the plastic bottles at room temperature for 24 - 36 hours the bottles are rock hard. Once refrigerated the yeast go dormant and any further carbon dioxide creation is stopped. The nice thing about these strains of yeasts is if a bottle of rootbeer goes flat all you have to do is screw on the top and give it a day for the yeast to re-carbonate the liquid. Then refrigerate and you have carbonated rootbeer ready to go.

I've been making honey mead for several years, and this is the brand of yeast I like best. It does a great job fermenting, without going crazy and foaming out of the container.

I use a 1-gallon wine bottle and and an air lock, and in about a month I've got the starts to some great mead. Bread yeast doesn't work as well, and some other brands of wine or champagne yeast don't tolerate the alcohol content as well.

I store the extra packets in the freezer and they're fresh and ready when I start a new batch.

I am using this yeast for a Co2 system in my 55g planted aquarium. It's amazing, within a half hour it started bubbling like crazy.

As a Christmas present for my husband, I said I would "perfect" a ginger beer recipe to his liking. For my first trial, I used regular bakers yeast (as that recipe called for) but it was too "yeasty" for our tastes. This yeast was much milder in flavor, while still giving us great carbonation. Our "perfect-for-us" recipe ended up using this yeast but only half as much as the recipe called for.

Never used Red Star in the past as I had access to Lalvin at my local store. Ordered after seeing a great price and find it to be just as good as what I am used to.
