Restart Stuck Fermentations, Syrah, Zinfandel, Sparkling Base
S. cerevisiae • bayanus
- Selected from the collection of the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France.
- Uvaferm BCTM (Bayanus) has a high sugar and alcohol tolerance. It has been known to ferment up to 17% (v/v) and is therefore a good choice for high Brix fermentations (e.g. late season Zinfandel or Syrah).
- Ferments cleanly with excellent fermentation kinetics. It is often chosen for sparkling base wines.
- BC (Bayanus) has low nitrogen requirements and is a low SO2 and VA producer. It is fructophilic and is therefore often used to restart stuck or sluggish fermentations.
