Grape cell structure

Grape Cell Structure

Primary wall-

Composed of Polysaccharides-Pectin, Hemi-cellulose, Cellulose & Proteins

Sugars & Acids


The influence of enzymes

The influence of enzymes


Enzymes for winemaking

Enzymes for winemaking

  • Skin contact enzymes- release aromas and aroma pre-cursors

  • Clarification

    • Break down pectin quickly and efficiently

    • Without the use of enzymes, you might notice there is trouble settling, and later down-stream, trouble with filtration

  • Maceration & Extraction of color and tannin

Optimizing and managing your fermentations

Optimizing and managing your fermentations


Managing fermentations

Managing fermentations

Plan your alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation together!

Malolactic fermentations are not an

afterthought!

Yeast strain acclimatization

Yeast Strain Acclimatization

  • Step1- Rehydration

    • 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 of water

    • Let the mixture cool to 40°C(104°F) then add the active dried yeast

    • Let stand for 20 minutes

    • Foaming is not an indicator of viability

  • Step 2- Acclimatization

    • Gently add some juice/must to rehydrated yeast

    • Drop temperature 15˚F and hold for 15 minutes

    • Repeat until within 15˚F of juice/must to be inoculated

  • Consequences? Stuck fermentation, off / sulfur-like aromas


Tools for harvest 2013

Keep your yeast in suspension- especially at the end of fermentation

Aerate: when cap forms and 1/3 way through fermentation


What else should we consider

What else should we consider?

  • Was our Alcoholic fermentation successful?

  • Why should this be a consideration?

    • Vigorous ALF = Difficult MLF

    • Difficult ALF = Difficult MLF

    • Easy ALF = Easier MLF

  • Is there any nutrients left for the bacteria?

Why are sterols so important

Why are Sterolsso important?

YeastCell Wall Cross section…


Tools for harvest 2013

Yeast cell wall composition:

Plasma Membrane is ~5% lipids

(sterols & unsaturated fatty acids)


Selectively permeable plasma membrane

Selectively Permeable Plasma Membrane

Lipid Bi-layer

After 5 generations of yeast growth

Plasma Membrane is <0.15% lipids

(sterols & polyunsaturated fatty acids)

Critically low!


Rehydration nutrients protect yeast under more difficult fermentation conditions

Rehydration Nutrients protect yeast under more difficult fermentation conditions :

  • Addition of sterols &unsaturated fatty acids

  • Protect yeast against initial osmotic shock – lower V.A.

  • Build-up yeast cell wall content of yeast stress resistant factors – protect against ethanol toxicity


Nitrogen requirements by enological yeast basic pointers

Nitrogen Requirements by Enological Yeast Basic Pointers!

  • Nitrogen demands of Saccharomyces are published

  • Nothing published about Non-Saccharomyces

  • Amount of N required is dependant upon the amount of sugar and yeast strain

  • Of nutrients assimilated by yeast during fermentation Nitrogen is, quantitatively, second to Carbon


Sugar nitrogen relationship

Sugar-Nitrogen Relationship

YAN = Ammonia + Free Amino Acids (FAN)


Nutrient supplementation

Yeast nitrogen sources

Yeast Nitrogen Sources


Yeast nutrients supplementations

Yeast Nutrients Supplementations

  • Rehydration nutrients

    • Protection for the cells

      • Noted at the end of fermentation

    • Essential due to current winemaking practices

      • Low turbidity, high ethanol, difficult temperatures

  • Fermentation nutrients

    • Nourish the cells

    • Vital due to winemaking particulars


Best approach to dealing with fermentation nutrients

Best Approach to Dealing with Fermentation Nutrients

  • Integrated approach

    • Using Combination of Rehydration nutrient, DAP and complex nutrients

  • Understanding what cells need, why and when

    • Rehydration step: Use GoFerm to increase sterols

    • 1/3 Sugar Depletion, feed the yeast

Quality of Nitrogen on Fermentation

Impact of Nitrogen Source on YeastFermentation Activity

  • 24mg/l of 100% OrganicYAN issignificantly more efficient than 50 mg/l of 100% inorganicYAN
