An active dry yeast for use in many types of beverage alcohol fermentations and is especially suited for glucose based feedstocks (most grain and starch-based mashes).
Recommended for use in the production of vodka, neutral spirits and light flavoured beverages, due to its low production of higher alcohols, aldehydes and esters. Ability to give good fermentation kinetics even under high-stress conditions, including high fermentation temperatures, high-gravity mash and high alcohol concentrations. Ferments well at temperatures up to 37°C and will continue to actively ferment at alcohol concentrations above 16 percent by volume
Temp. range 25°C – 37°C
pH range 3.5 – 5.2
The optimal yeast dosage is variable according to individual distillery production processes.
Normal dose rate 0.25 – 0.40 grams per litre of wash (dosage: 25 – 40 g/hL)
Instructions for Use:
Rehydrate the yeast in clean water (the water should be 10 times the weight of the yeast and at a temperature of 35°C – 40°C).
Suspend contents carefully by gently stirring and then wait for 10 – 15 minutes maximum (minimum 10 minutes) before moving onto the next step.
For rehydration, use a clean container. Do not use demineralized water. Add this preparation to the wash. If there is a temperature difference of more than 8°C between the wash to be inoculated and the rehydration solution, add some wash slowly into the rehydration solution to reduce the temperature difference.
