Key Features

Fermaid K - 1 oz.

Use 1 gram per gallon.

Fermaid K is a blended complex yeast nutrient that supplies ammonia salts (DAP), free amino acids (organic nitrogen derived from inactivated yeast), sterols, unsaturated fatty acids, key nutrients (magnesium sulfate, thiamin, folic acid, niacin, biotin, calcium pan­tothenate) and inactive yeast. For best results, Fermaid K should be used in conjunction with an appropriate yeast rehydration nutrient (such as Go-Ferm) to assure proper nutrition of cultured yeast from rehydration through completed fermentation.

Fermaid K provides unsaturated fatty acids and sterols. These are important survival factors needed to maintain alcohol resistance and permease activity. They also help keep volatile acidity levels low.

Nitrogen is needed for protein synthesis and to maintain cellular growth. Nitrogen from the alpha amino acids contained in Fermaid K is utilized much more efficiently than from the ammonia salts.

The cell wall fractions in Fermaid K absorb short and medium chain fatty acids that are toxic to the yeast. They also provide nucleation sites to help keep the yeast in suspension.

To Use: Fermaid K should be mixed with room temperature water before adding to an active fermen­tation to avoid CO2 release and overflowing of tanks or barrels. The amount of water used is not critical. Simply add enough to make a slurry.
