Available in 1kg, 10kg and 25kg packaging
Some of the operations made to activate fermentation act on the yeast growth and the fermentation kinetic at its beginning only without acting on the yeast survival or the end of fermentation. The use of SpringCell™ BIO yeast hulls helps acting on the yeast viability on a long term thanks to their must detoxification properties and the supply in survival factors for the yeast generations formed during the yeast growth phase.
Yeast cell walls are performing fermentation aids that allow acting efficiently against stuck & sluggish fermentation.
SpringCell™ BIO yeast hulls are issued from Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeasts specifically grown on organic certified substrate and processed accordingly to keep an organic certification.
Inhibitive fatty acids, phyto sanitary products’ residues, ochratoxin A, thanks to the presence of glucans & mannans that fix these compounds.
These elements allow the protection of successive generations of active yeast from the first generation while maintaining the integrity of their membrane while increasing their resistance to ethanol.
SpringCell™ BIO is the only activator allowing to reach a total consumption of sugars in a must whose fermentation is slow, without producing volatile acidity.
SpringCell™ BIO is almost 100% insoluble and has a support effect in highly clarified musts by increasing their turbidity without the inconvenience of organoleptic deviations that can be caused by lees.
Decanoic acid adsorption test (RESOLUTION OIV-OENO 497-2013)
SpringCell™ BIO yeast hulls have totally similar adsorption capacities
than conventional SpringCell towards the greatest yeast growth inhibitor, i.e. the decanoic acid. This ensures their quality as efficient fermentation aids.
In addition, SpringCell™ BIO doesn’t show significant differences compared to SpringCell in terms of organoleptic impact.
Dilute 20 to 30 g/hl in 10 times its volume of wine, add to the must between 35 and 45% of the sugars consumed and homogenize using a pumping-over
In red wine making, SpringCell™ BIO addition should be done underneath the cap. In case of musts with a high settlement it is recommended to add SpringCell™ BIO after the settling down, just before yeast inoculation.
As a cure, for stuck or sluggish fermentations:
Dilute 30 to 40 g/hl in 10 times its volume of wine then incorporate directly in the racked wine sulfited at a dose of 2 to 3 g/hl.
Consult our restarting protocol.
Warning: SpringCell™ BIO yeast hulls are subjected to usage limit of 40g/hl according to the European legislation.
