Our multi-purpose nutrient, DistilaVite® GN uses a complete nutrient blend to help yeast with the correct nutrient balance needed for it to thrive in fermentations.
Ingredients include inorganic nitrogen (diammonium phosphate), organic nitrogen (amino nitrogen from inactivated yeast), and essential vitamins and minerals like thiamine, niacin, folic acid, magnesium sulfate and calcium pantothenate while also providing provides sterols and fatty acids, which helps yeast gain some alcohol tolerance.
Some nutrients like DistilaVite® GN increases yeast budding during the growth phase during fermentation, resulting in in high yeast concentrations. Higher concentrations in yeast can end up with more consistent and complete fermentations and better congener production.
This nutrient can be used in grain fermentations, sugar based fermentations, and can also be used fruits. Using this nutrient with a rum or tequila yeast is also possible.
Directions for use:
DistilaVite® GN can be added to the propagator, to the fermenter itself at the start, or part way through the fermentation when yeast budding starts to slow down.
Use 1 to 2 pounds per 1,000 US gallons of mash. When working with refined sugars such as cane sugar for rum/neutral spirit, fructose syrup from corn or any other converted starch from grains, use 8 pounds per 1,000 US Gallons or at 4 pounds per 1,000 gallons if external nitrogen sources have been added.
Do not mix concentrated nutrient directly into yeast or add to dry yeast during rehydration.
Should be stored in a cool, dry area for maximum stability and optimal shelf life. When stored under these conditions,the product is stable for thirty six months from the date of
Note: This is simply a nutrient and will need to pair with yeast to work. Take a look at some recommended yeasts:
