Nutrient Vit EndTM is a specific inactivated yeast developed by the Lallemand research and development group. It has high bio-adsorptive properties for short and medium chain fatty acids and fungicides which can cause problem fermentations. Saturated fatty acids modify the yeast sugar transport capacity by interfering with the membrane sugar transport proteins. When used during fermentation it can help minimize the risk of sluggish or stuck fermentations. It can also be used to help restart a sluggish or stuck fermentation. It is OMRI listed.
To Use: Suspend Nutrient Vit End in water, juice or wine and mix well before adding to juice or must. If using with a stuck or sluggish fermentation, allow to settle and rack off prior to restart.
Storage: Store in a cool and dry environment below 25°C (77°F). Product shelf-life is 3 years from manufacturing date.
Recommended for use with: Inactivated yeast for sluggish and stuck fermentations
- Juice/Must at the beginning of fermentation: Use at a rate of 1.13 g Nutrient Vit End per gallon of Must/Juice.
- For Sluggish or Stuck wine: Use at a rate of 1.5 g Nutrient Vit End per gallon of Must/Juice.
- Note: when using with a stuck or sluggish fermentation allow to settle and rack off prior to restart.
