Mauriferm Plus is recommended for improving fermentation and reducing the risk of stuck and sluggish fermentations.
Mauriferm Plus is a unique fermentation aid containing inactive dry yeast, thiamin and di-ammonium phosphate. Developed in Australia by AB Mauri’s Global Technology Group, this product is recommended for improving fermentation and reducing the risk of stuck and sluggish fermentations. The products used in this fermentation aid are approved by the OIV.
Mauriferm Plus improves fermentation by removing toxic fatty acids
The inactive yeast cell walls in Mauriferm Plus 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. Yeast cell walls also provide a source of sterols and other components essential for yeast cell division.
Mauriferm Plus improves fermentation with the provision of nitrogen
Nitrogen is essential for protein synthesis and sugar transportation. Nitrogen deficiency can also result in the production of undesirable compounds such as hydrogen sulphide. The yeast assimilable nitrogen (YAN) content of Mauriferm Plus is 26 mg N/L.
Mauriferm Plus improves fermentation with the addition of thiamin (vitamin B1)
Thiamin is important for cellular metabolic activities such as protein synthesis, sugar metabolism, enzyme activity and cell wall synthesis. The addition of thiamin can also reduce the levels of acetic, pyruvic and ketoglutaric acids, as well as reducing the amount of hydrogen sulphide that may be present.
Dosage: Add 30 g/HL direct to the juice/must when 1/3 of fermentation is complete
