Description

The Fermaid line of products are a range of nutrients that have been adopted from winemaking and put to use supporting beer fermentations as well.

   
Fermaid O is a newer formulation of the long trusted Fermaid K nutrient which replaces the inorganic DAP in Fermaid K with an organic source of nitrogen instead. The organic nitrogen in Fermaid O is better for your yeast, and that results in better beer!
 
Organic Nitrogen is easier for your yeast to digest, resulting in a smoother, more consistent fermentation. Fermaid O fermentations show fewer temperature spikes, which minimizes negative effects that can be caused by heat. Compared to DAP, Fermaid O results in more consistent and complete fermentation, and lower levels of negative sulfur compounds and other off-flavors.
 
Use at a rate of 1.5g / gal of wort. Dissolve in a small amount of wort or water and add to your fermenter at pitching.

when is fermaid o introduced into the wine must?
Anthony DAmico on Oct 25, 2021
BEST ANSWER: There are a few technical terms and measurements you could use to decide but I add mostly on instinct. 2 doses are recommended at 20g/100liter (hL) and I do #1 at the first sign of yeast activity (foam cap) and #2 2-3 days later. The second dose is supposed to correspond to 1/3 of the sugar being consumed, which could be 1 day for a warm ferment with an aggressive yeast or a month with a wild ferment really cold. Mine are usually slower yeasts around 60degs and I have found 2-3 days to be that point. Also it is less critical when it happens if you use rehydration nutrient (GoFerm) to start your yeast, solid fermenting yeast strains and minimize other factors that can cause yeast stress (temp swings, overclarification, etc)

Fermaid O
I have not had any problems with off aromas during fermentation since I started using this. It keeps the yeast really happy.

I’m using Formaid O to insure a complete fermentation of sugar. It seems to be making a difference.

A good product for higher surgar musts to ensure a likely successful fermentation.

First time experience
I just used Fermaid O in a batch of Black Raspberry (which I grow) wine. I had a good but not foamy fermentation. Fermented down to SG 0.992. So, based on this one experience, I can recommend it, as it does it's job. Bigger tests for it as the harvest season approaches... Cheers!

Working as expected so far
I'm using the Fermaid O as my sole nutrient in the mead. Way to early to judge how it will come out, but it seems to be fermenting as expected.
