This is more of a mead related question, but since I used a wine strain...

Last night I pitched a packet of Red Star Pasteur Red yeast into a pyment
mead with an original gravity of 1.110.  How far down will Pasteur Red
ferment?  I've searched the web but could not find any info on this.

By the way, this was a fast start to the ferment.  I was mixing this pyment
mead up while watching the pregame show for the Cubs and Braves game on
Friday night.  And by the late innings, with my Cubbies in control of the
game, the mead was already fermenting.

According to the manufacturer, Red Star Pasteur Red has a rated
yeast-tolerance of 16%.

Hi Craig

Given a healthy environment for the yeast Pasteur Red should take your mead to
dryness.

Does Red Star have a wine yeast site?  I went to their site, or so I think
I did, but the only yeast info that they had was for baking.  I did a
Google search, and found links that pointed to the same site, but the URLs
no longer worked.

To my knowledge, Red Star does not maintain a separate wine yeast site, or
even mention that product line on their main website.

Correction (of my previous post in this thread): Universal Foods has sold
Red Star to Lesaffre, and they do have a wine yeast site now:

The Oregon Brew Crew is in the midst of completing an experiment on mead
where we took 30 gallons of 1.110 mead and split it between six different
yeasts. The Red Star finished at 1.004. Our tasting is scheduled for early
Nov.

Are you also referring to Red Star Pastuer Yeast? Or another Red Star yeast.

When did you start these meads?  I hope you are posting the results in full
on this site and on the Mead site.

Hmm, not knowing much about wine yeasts....yet.... I just typed in Red Star.
It's Pasteur Red.

Our goal is to publish the results. Where, I don't know as I'm not the one
running the experiment. Being a homebrew club, Zymurgy will be our likely
target. I will commit to posting the results here and in the mead and
brewing NG's.

How about I throw out a few more data points:
