Is there a specific kind of yeast? I assume the bread kind is not the same? Please let me know I would love to try to make dandelion wine!!!

BTW great article. I have seen dandelion greens in "mixed greens" sold in stores :) We lovingly call it weed mix and prefer it over plain old iceberg any day.

Yes, yeast is yeast is yeast. Bread yeast is the right stuff. The beady looking stuff in packages(Fleishmans comes to mind) that you buy for baking is the same stuff used for wine.

Good luck in your wine making endeavor. Let me know how you like it.
