Mauriferm Activator is a Fermentation aid to supplement essential ingredients for yeast, promoting strong yeast growth and reducing the chance of stuck and sluggish fermentations.
Mauriferm Activator improves fermentation by removing toxic fatty acids
The inactive yeast cell walls in Mauriferm Activator adsorb toxic medium-length chain saturated fatty acids. These toxic fatty acids can accumulate during fermentation, inhibiting sugar transport into the yeast cell and resulting in a slow or stuck fermentation.
Mauriferm Activator provides sterols and unsaturated fatty acids
The inactivated yeast cell walls release sterols and unsaturated fatty acids that act as oxygen substitutes in an anaerobic environment. This promotes cell wall growth and durability, resulting in a more reliable and consistent fermentation.
Mauriferm Activator enhances the sensory profile of the wine
Mauriferm Activator supplements essential vitamins and trace minerals ensuring the yeast remain viable and healthy during the course of fermentation. This ensures that the yeast are not producing off-aromas or flavours. The increased polysaccharide levels in Mauriferm Activator can also have a positive effect on the texture and mouthfeel of the wine.
Dosage: Add 30 g/HL direct to the juice/must at the beginning of fermentation.
