Good for ethanol and SO2 tolerance. Begins fermentation quickly and is reliable at cooler fermentation temperatures. Neutral flavor profile. Recommended for dry white and red wines but actually not the first choice for champagne (DYW10 is.) Alcohol tolerance to 17% and a fermentation range of 60 to 80 degrees.

Great dry yeast, that always works well, for a backyard amateur who can't really taste the difference between yeasts anyway

fast fermentation and no off odors

It helps fermentation of beer when there is a lot of extra sugars, like 5lbs of honey.

Go to yeast for fast start, wide temperature tolerance and complete fermentation in high gravity ciders.

Great Cider Yeast
After trying many dry wine yeasts, I like this Red Star Premier Blanc the best in terms of flavor.

I created a cider using 5 Gal Apple Juice (Stater Bros) and 5 cups sugar. Rehydrated the yeast per instructions (which are near impossible to read with the white on yellow font) and pitched at room temp ~70F. Fermented around 68-70F.

OG: 1.070, FG: 1.000 after 13 days. Kegged and force carbonated. Even at 1.000 being super dry I didn't feel the need to do my usual 1 can of frozen apple juice concentrate for backsweetening because there was enough fruit flavor coming through. After only 13 days in fermenter the cider tasted great and was very dry but with a pleasant fruit flavor. Served this to the wife and some friends on New Years Eve (9% ABV) with compliments from all.

This stuff ferments fast and fierce. Highly recommended to have a few spares to solve stuck fermentation. I use this for cider with great results.

Excellent dried yeast
If you need champagne yeast, this is excellent. Chomps right through that sugar like, well, it's job!
