The process of dehydrating yeasts is extremely traumatic for the yeasts, and a large fraction of the yeast population dies during dehydration. Consequently, your package of dried yeast is actually a mix of stressed living yeasts, dead yeasts and yeast debris – and this is not the ideal start for your ferment as stressed yeasts are prone to producing off flavours.
Our Fermentation nutrient R is a yeast nutrient blend specially formulated for use when rehydrating dried yeasts. Start by dissolving 1 part Fermentation nutrient R in 20 parts sterile water (the water should be at the desired fermentation temperature), then sprinkle the dried yeast on top of the water and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then stir the mix gently, and let it sit for another 5 minutes. Gently stir and use the yeast slurry to start your yeast starter, or add it directly to your fermentation vessel if you do not make a yeast starter.
The compositions of our yeast nutrients are based on peer reviewed studies in yeast growth medias and yeast physiology, to make sure that they provide what your yeasts need in order to do their job as well as they can!
Dextrose, yeast extract, inositol, calcium pantothenate, niacin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, thiamine hydrochloride, riboflavin, potassium iodide, folic acid, biotin.
