Saccharomyces Bayanus – Very good all round strain, best choice for high alcohol and fortified wines but also excellent for most country wines, sweet sparkling wines and ciders.
If you only had one wine yeast strain, this would be the strain because whilst being relatively neutral in character SN9 does introduce excellent weight and structure no matter the must or fruit and produces a congener profile that always compliments the wine.
SN9 is particularly good when fermenting flower or low fruit recipes which often lack vinosity, weight and depth.
SN9 is another strain noted for its robustness, being able to ferment to 18% abv. ethanol, tolerate high free SO2 and high levels of other stress factors such as organic acids, incorrect temperature and pH. But unlike CL23, SN9 adds weight and high glycerol production making the strain perfect for high alcohol sweet wines or where uncertain recipes are employed and fermentation reliability is a key factor or where low temperature fermentation down to 10OC (50OF) is required.
This strain is ‘fermentation friendly’ in that it produces zero foam, starts fermenting rapidly so avoids potential bacterial contamination and can be used to re-start stuck fermentations. SN9 is also the most osmotolerant and the fasting clearing of all Vintner’s Harvest strains.
SN9 is ideal for restarting stuck fermentations.
ide range of applications and can also be used when making fruit wines.
Alcohol tolerance: 18% v/v
SO2 tolerance: High
Low production of urea
Low production of fusel oils
Viability: >1.2x 10 CFU/g
During yeast manufacture, special processs are employed to promote very high leveles of the natural compound – Trehalose within the yeast.
Trehalose is a natural sugar produced within the yeast cells to protect itself during prolonged storage and stress conditions.
The very high levels of trehalose acheieved also remove the need for re-hydration before adding to must or wort – there is now no advantage in doing this even for high alcohol wines.
Alcotec Distiller’s Rum Turbo Yeast
73g sachets, suitable for 25 litre fermentations.
Contains both Turbo Yeast, Yeast Nutrient, Amylase Enzyme and Vitamins.
For grain or molasses based recipes, we have added a GA (glucoamylase) enzyme which breaks down dextrins which are leftovers from the raw materials after fermentation (grain, rice etc.).
For grain based recipes, you also need to pre-treat the wash with Alcotec Alpha Amylase Enzyme (see our Shop sold separately).
Contains complete nutrition for rapid fermentation.
Producing full, rich fruity aromatics, it also includes glucoamylase enzyme to break down and convert starch and carbs into sugars for optimum yield.
NOTE: Alcotec Distiller’s Yeasts are designed for use when making spirit in the more traditional way, ie from grain.
