Yeast rehydration nutrient; OMRI listed
Go-Ferm® is a natural yeast rehydration nutrient containing a balance of vitamins and minerals. It was developed to enhance fermentation kinetics and to help avoid fermentation problems. By suspending Go-Ferm in the rehydration water before adding the selected active dried yeast culture, the yeast soak up the valuable bio-available micronutrients as they rehydrate. Infusing yeast with these critical nutrients arms them against ethanol toxicity and optimizes nutrient availability, protecting and stimulating the yeast culture.
30 g/hL 2.5 lb/1000 gal
Note: This recommendation is based on a yeast inoculum of 2 lb/1000 gallons (25 g/hL). If using more or less yeast, respect the ratio of 1 part yeast to 1.25 Go-Ferm.
1. Mix Go-Ferm in 20 times its weight in clean 43°C(110°F) water. For every 1 kg (2.2 lb) Go-Ferm, use approximately 5 gallons (20 L) of water.
2. Let the mixture cool to 40°C(104°F) then add the selected active dried yeast.
3. Let stand for 20 minutes.
4. Slowly (over 5 minutes) add equal amounts of must/juice to be fermented to the yeast slurry. Do not allow more than 10°C(18°F) difference. Atemperate as necessary (see page 7 for more details).
Dated expiration. Store in a cool and dry environment at 18°C(65°F). Once opened, keep tightly sealed and dry.
