Thread: Dv10

  1. Default Dv10

    So I made a 23l batch of Sack Mead last fall. I used 11.5kg of total step-fed honey and used DV10 yeast. F.G 1.02 ABV 17.58%

    After bulk aging for 1 yr I put some oak in 8 cubes American Med Toast and 4 cubes American Dark Toast for 2 months.

    The result is a thick viscous mead mead with some residual sweetness. Prior to the oak addition there was some harshness on the finish but the oak grounded that out and left slight caramel/coffee notes behind.

    Conclusion I really like DV10.

    I agree that it is a good yeast. Especially if you like good volume/ mouthfeel. I blend it with other things to get the added volume. It also contributes to acidity/mineralogy.
    I have 3 batches of it going as we speak.

    I like DV10 too but mainly use it for hydromels - they turn out crisp and clean tasting, not much yeast influence in the final product.

    This is DV10. I'll be adding cranberries to the Mesquite, and strawberries to the ON. The snowberry will be a trad or possibly a meth. Don't know for sure

    Yep. DV10 & D254. Very good yeasts to blend with. D254 i need to babysit a little but ads those peppery notes sought after often
    better to do it than to live in the fear of it
