YEAST VIT is supplied as a free flowing pale brown to yellow crystalline powder, which is a formulated blend of organic salts, vitamins, amino acids and trace elements along with an approved organic source of nitrogen. YEAST VIT is designed to ensure correction of nutrient deficiencies in wort.
- Improves rate of yeast growth.
- Prevents slow fermentations
- Useful in high / low nitrogen worts
- Concentrated in powder product, economical in use
Brewers yeast needs readily used sources of vitamins and trace elements. Deficiencies of such components can cause the following symptoms:
- Long lag phase
- High pH
- Sticking fermentations
- Poor finings
Rates of Use: The product can be mixed into the yeast slurry about 30 minutes before pitching into the wort, or alternatively mixed with a small volume of wort and added to the fermenter. It can also be added to the kettle at the end of the boil.
YEAST VIT should be added at a rate of between 3.5g and 8.5 g per hectolitre of wort. A Suitable starting rate would be 5g per hectolitre. A high rate may be required for a short period, after which the rate of addition can be significantly reduced. With regular use, low rates can be effective in preventing nutrient deficiencies.
