Description

Go-Ferm Protect is a new formulation of our AD342 - Go-Ferm

Go-Ferm Protect is a natural yeast nutrient that is added to the yeast hydration water before adding your selected yeast strain. Its complex formula provides your yeast with the proper sterols, unsaturated fatty acids and micronutrients needed to begin fermentation in optimal shape. The great thing about Go-Ferm Protect is that the proper nutrients and vitamins are introduced BEFORE the yeast is added to the must. This way 100% of the nutrients are available to your selected yeast strain and won't be stolen away by any indigenous yeast or bacteria that may be present in the must before your yeast can become established.

New Advanced Formula!

Go-Ferm Protect was created as a result of a multi-year study of problem fermentations by Lallemand and the National Agricultural Research Institute (INRA) in France. During this period, they looked at the adverse effects on the yeast from overripe fruit (>28 Brix), low nutrient levels, overclarification of the juice and poor fruit quality (Botrytis, rot, high bacteria count, insecticide and fungicide residue). Their research showed that musts deficient in sterols and unsaturated fatty acids made yeast more susceptible to ethanol toxicity (high alcohol), osmotic shock (high sugar), temperature and others stress factors. In response to this data they created the NATSTEP (NATural STErol Protection) process that incorporated sterols, unsaturated fatty acids, as well as vitamins and minerals into an advance yeast hydration nutrient: Go-Ferm Protect.

Go-Ferm Protect provides a combination of protective and nutritional benefits that ensure your yeast begins your fermentation in peak form! The best part is that if your fruit is in great shape then Go-Ferm Protect will simply help your yeast out that much more!

Go-Ferm Protect does not contain any DAP, as DAP is harmful to the yeast during the rehydration process. GO-Ferm is usually used in conjunction with our Fermaid K yeast nutrient; where Go-Ferm Protect is used at yeast hydration then Fermaid K is added at the first signs of fermentation and again after 1/3 sugar depletion.

To Use
Use at a rate of 1.25 g Go-Ferm Protect per 1 g of yeast.

Go-Ferm Protect Evolution
Originally purchased to support R2 yeast, but won't be making that wine until late April. Recently used Go-Ferm to support Nottingham yeast in a 14.5% ABV Barleywine. Primary fermentation of the Barleywine was complete in 2.5 days with no stalling, no off-flavors, and no fusels.

I rehydrate my dry yeast with this product. I have experienced vigorous fermentations with very little lag time. I have not done comparative experiment related to sprinkling to dry yeast directly into the wort without rehydration first.

Important part of every fermentation
When you use the finest grapes and berries to make your wine, why take a chance with your fermentation by ignoring proper yeast nutrition. We give every one of our fermentations the benefit of Go Ferm and Ferm aid nutrients, which provide us with healthy and strong activity.

Currently have 8 batches of mead in secondary and used this product with every batch. Healthy fermentations with fast start and no yeast fermentation (stress) off flavor issues.

Wow, my fermentations never started faster
Great product, I saw active fermentation within a coupe of hours instead of the next day. Really boosts up the yeast.
