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.
