This Prisse de Mousse strain is fast-starting, clean and neutral. EC-1118 is a popular choice because of its consistently strong fermentation characteristics and high alcohol tolerance, up to 18%. The first choice for champagne and sparkling wines. Also good for restarting stuck fermentations. Ferments between 50 and 80 degrees.

Side note, coffee mead is NOT a good idea ...
By Mr Hanky on March 4, 2020
I don't know if the cells are all dead or what, but from what I read it is not this hard to get yeast to ferment so there is clearly something wrong.

I started with an SG of 1.080, after 10 weeks, (today), my SG is 1.036. Which rounded down, is about 6.5ABV. This yeast maxes out around 18%
It’s still fermenting, but very slightly.
At this rate, I’ll probably be dead before I can bottle it 😂
Just for general info...
This is the third batch of raspberry mead that I’m doing. I’m working on the recipe and was using D-47. I decided I wanted to go a little higher on the ABV so I switched up to the EC-1118.
I’m figuring on going back to the D-47
I even gave it another dose of yeast the other day.
Activated it first, of course.
Bubbled up a bit like it was gonna go to town. About an hour later, I was right back where I started 😕
EC-1118 can ferment up to around 18%, is very fast, and has a neutral flavor profile. Excellent for mead and quite frankly, most wines in general!
