Description

Good for 66 gallons. Oenococcus Oeni strain manufactured by Christian Hansen laboratories. Malolactic cultures are bacteria that convert harsher malic acid to lactic acid. They are often used in red wines to mellow them and sometimes in Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc to provide the buttery notes. This culture is added 2-3 days into the initial ferment while the alcohol levels are lower. This was the original ML strain that most winemakers used. Alcohol tolerance 14% v/v. There are superior strains now available such as the other five strains that we offer.

Great stuff!
Past experiences with this product have been positive. The purchase I recently made is for my 2018 harvest. I've been using this ML strain for several years, it's my standard ML treatment.

We have been using this malolactic culture for the last few years, seems to work quickly and completely. Have never had any issues or lack of complete malolactic fermentation.

Freeze dried Viniflora review
I have used this Malolactic bacteria for years. It always frements quickly and completely. I add it when my must reaches 80 degrees. It likes it warm.
