Similarly, you may ask, what kind of yeast do you use to make wine?
The most common yeast generally associated withwinemaking is Saccharomyces cerevisiae which is alsoused in bread making and brewing. Other genera ofyeast that can be involved in winemaking (eitherbeneficially or as the cause of potential wine faults)include: Brettanomyces (Teleomorph Dekkera)
Furthermore, what's the difference between wine yeast and regular yeast? Yeast are what turn sugar into alcohol.now difference between wine yeast and bread bakingyeast: wine yeast is bred to obtain higher alcohollevel than bread yeast means less CO2 gas. so if you areplanning to make wine with bread yeast, you can butyou'll sacrifice alcohol and flavor.
Keeping this in consideration, can any yeast be used to make alcohol?

How much yeast do I use for 1 gallon of wine?
So, when you add a whole packet of wine yeast to1 gallon of wine, you are not adding too much yeast.You are simply adding the minimum amount required to support ahealthy, active fermentation. Adding less then a packet couldresult in a slow starting fermentation that will take extratime to finish the job.
