Description

Acti-ML is a Malolactic nutrient used during rehydration of both direct inoculation and standard-type Malolactic Bacteria strains. It is a specific blend of inactive yeasts rich in amino acids, mineral cofactors and vitamins. These inactive yeasts are mixed with cellulose to provide more surface area to help keep the bacteria in suspension. Acti-ML can help strengthen the development of bacteria growth under difficult conditions.

Please note that due to its unique formulation, only Acti-ML can be used in the hydration phase of malolactic bacteria. Other ML nutrient formulas are not compatible with this protocol and their use during the hydration phase could severely limit the bacteria's viability!

Acti-ML serves an analogous function to Go-Ferm Protect in yeast fermentations.

To Use:
Mix Acti-ML into 5 times its weight in 25C (77F) chlorine-free water. Add your bacterial culture, then wait 15 minutes before adding to the wine. Dosage rate: 0.84g/gal of wine

Valued C on May 14, 2019
Should I use this even with a liquid Malo like Wyeast 4007? The website's red winemaking guide is not very clear on this point. It would seem like the Wyeast is already hydrated since it's a liquid, so maybe I don't need this?
