Clayton Cone

At Lallemand we are blessed to have one of the world's foremost authorities in fermentation science. Back when many self-proclaimed fermentation experts were just a sparkle in their daddy's eyes, Clayton Cone was in the business of growing yeast. He spent almost 20 years at Fleischmann and joined our team right at the start of our wine yeast business.

What we love about Clayton is that he tells it like it is. His hands-on experience in completing all types of fermentations gives him the ability to answer problems with practical solutions. We hope that the sage advice from Lallemand's Yeast Guru, Clayton Cone, and his lackeys will help you solve (or hopefully avoid) fermentation problems.
