Yeast rehydration nutrient; OMRI listed
Go-Ferm Protect Evolution™ is the latest generation of yeast rehydration nutrients. This formulation has optimized the bioavailability of vitamins, minerals and sterols, all of which are derived from inactivated wine yeast. The benefits are clearly seen at the end of alcoholic fermentation.
Yeast rehydrated in Go-Ferm Protect Evolution have enhanced viability, vitality and tolerance to wine stresses such as ethanol, acid, sugar and temperature. These yeast also express more aromatic varietal aromas (Fig. 3) due to Go-Ferm Protect Evolution's high ergosterol content which enables yeast membrane transport systems better aromatic precursor assimilation.
When used in fermentations where oxygen additions are difficult, Go-Ferm Protect Evolution's enhanced sterol content can replace the second oxygen addition recommended at 1/3 sugar depletion.
Mix Go-Ferm Protect Evolution in 20 times its weight of clean 43°C(110°F) water. Let the mixture cool to 40°C(104°F) then add the selected active dried yeast. Let stand for 20 minutes.
Slowly (over 5 minutes) add equal amounts of juice/must to be fermented to the yeast slurry. Do not allow more than 10°C(18°F) difference. Acclimatize yeast as necessary.
Dated expiration. Store in a cool and dry environment at 18°C(65°F). Once opened, keep tightly sealed and dry.
