    Re: Mckenzie bourbon blog

    Thanks for the quick response. Of all of your distilled products, how many different yeasts are used? (Sorry for the rapid fire questions, but I'm really intrigued by the process and am always trying to compare producers.)

    We use one yeast. a dry yeast that is used by many bourbon distillers in Kentucky. It is a good fermenter and always does a good job and has good flavor.
