SafŒno™ SC 22 - Active Dry Yeast

THE original starter yeast. SafOEno SC 22 was the very first strain to be selected for a wine application for its respect of the varietal character of cultivars and for its regular & complete fermentation kinetic. It is an excellent fermenter. Still wines Dosage: 20 g/hl. Fermentation restart Dosage: 30 to 40 g/hl. Premium Red Wines: SafOEno SC 22 is the strain of choice of the Bordelais region estates and as such is particularly adapted to cultivars like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It allows a rapid fermentation start and an excellent fermentation regularity producing fine, neat wines with terroir characteristics. Barrel fermentation or Ageing: SafOeno SC 22 is ideal for barrel fermentations. Even without controlling temperatures, the strain ferments regularly and its temperature rarely goes above 30°C, thus making stuck fermentation risks very low. Additionally it allows a very good expression of aromas linked to barrel ageing. White & Rose wines: SafOEno SC 22 is a neutral strain allowing the production of wines with a great finesse while respecting the character of varieties. It is also adapted to the fermentation of white aromatic cultivars at low temperature with a long ageing on lees (Chenin Blanc, Viognier). Easy to Use. Fermentation abilities: Rapid fermentation start, Alcohol tolerance:15% vol./vol.,Regular and complete fermentation of the sugars, Fermentation temperature: 12 to 35°C, Medium nitrogen requirement : between 150 & 180 mg/L of available nitrogen it is necessary to supply 20g/hl of Springferm & 20g/hl of DAP at yeast inoculation. Metabolic Characteristics: Sugar/Alcohol yield: 17.2 g/l for 1% vol./vol., Very low production of volatile acidity (<0.15 g/L) and of SO2. Average glycerol production: 4g/L. Ingredients: yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae*), Emulsifier: E491 (sorbitan monostearate)
