Good for 66 gallons. Enoferm Beta is a single strain of Oenococcus oeni (ex Leuconostoc oenos), isolated from a Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Abbruzzi. It was selected due to it's good performance under difficult wine conditions, positive sensory contribution, and security from its low use of sugars and very low volatile acid as well as biogenic amines production. In winery trials, Enoferm Beta was able to induce MLF at temperatures as low as 55o F. Most direct inoculum preparations have difficulty completing MLF unless temperatures > 64F, while Enoferm Beta can be used in wines with temperatures > 59F.

  • Alcohol tolerance <15% v/v.
  • SO2 tolerant <60 ppm
  • pH: >3.2
  • temperature:>57 degrees F

    Different lactic acid bacteria strains do have an impact on the flavor profile of wine, Enoferm Beta can positively contribute to the sensory profile of the wine, by enhancing spicy and red fruit aromas, improving structure and body, and less astringency and bitterness. Recent studies show Enoferm Beta to be a low diacetyl producer when used in co-inoculation and a moderate to high producer when used post-AF.

    You can't store malolactic bacteria once the package has been opened. Note: Malolactic bacteria added during the ferment will compete with the yeast for nutrients and are atagonistic to yeast, sometimes causing problems resulting in stuck or stalled fermentations. The best time to add an ML culture is after racking off the gross lees.

This yeast, both alpha and beta enoferm, is the only one I have had consistent successful ML fermentations. Too bad it doesn't come in smaller sizes. I work with 6-15 gal. batches.

Great Malo
I have used this for my 2013 Malbec and will be using it again for my 2014 Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon. The guys at Lallemand are great at suggesting yeasts as well.
