should be yummy as long as I can pick up the right yeast they gave me 1118 and it should have been 71b

yeah, Richard and I are not happy with the Lalvin 1118 yeast, it seems to generate a lot of fusels or something else that makes one's head hurt.

Lalvin 71B: For nouveau wines
71B was isolated by the INRA (National Agricultural Research Institute) in Narbonne, France. 71B is known for making blush and semi-sweet wines with a 'fruit salad' character. Long-lived aromas are due to its production of esters and higher alcohols. 71B also softens high acid musts by partially metabolizing malic acid.
