Description
1-Step® cultures are improved versions of an old concept. The purpose is to provide winemakers with a product that combines the economy and activity of standard strains with a degree of the convenience associated with the direct inoculation strains.

In lieu of direct inoculation or prolonged build-up, a simple 18–24 hour acclimatization step is required using a culture of Oenococcus oeni and an activator (included in the kits). 1-Step cultures are a good choice when efficiency and cost management are essential.

The 1-Step cultures can also be used to restart a stuck or sluggish MLF. None of our commercial ML strains contain the decarboxylase enzymes known to produce biogenic amines.

1-Step® Alpha (same strain as Enoferm Alpha) was selected by the IFV in France from a spontaneous malolactic fermentation. It shows good fermentation activity.

The 1-Step Alpha starter kit combines a highly effective malolactic starter culture with an activator to induce malolactic fermentation in an 18–24 hour acclimitization procedure.

Known strain that has proven effective at alcohol levels up to 15.5% (v/v), pH above 3.2, total SO2 up to 50 ppm, and temperature down to 14°C(57°F).

Prior to use please review the Rehydration Protocols for Sequenial Inoculation or for Co-Inoculation.
