Wyeast 4007 Malo Lactic Blend
Wyeast 4007 Malo Lactic Blend of fresh liquid cultures of L. oenos ER1A and EY2D provide rapid and complete malic acid to lactic acid reduction to balance and soften wines.
AKA Leuconostoc Oenos. Fresh liquid cultures of L. oenos ER1A and EY2D provide rapid and complete malic acid to lactic acid reduction to balance and soften wines. ER1A and EY2D perform well in conditions of low pH and cool cellaring. Typical conditions of high wine acidity can be improved by reducing the harsh, sharp malic acid in the wine to the softer and smoother lactic acid. Other flavor improvements including vanilla and buttery notes can be anticipated. Natural occurring malic acid bacteria on fruit may be of inferior quality or quantity to complete malo-lactic fermentation. Vinter Choice malo-lactic cultures are suitable of pH 2.9 or greater and cellar temperatures as low as 55° F
19 days ago we fulfilled your order of 1 x Wyeast 4007 Malo Lactic Blend from our store Northern Brewer. I guess thats what it is. Won’t know for a couple months, as its supposed to take that long to convert the malic to lactic acid. After that it will take a good part of a year before it is bottled and tasted, so who knows? Hard to give more than an average rating, when I don’t really know.
I thought I was purchasing something from Oregon but instead it was shipped from the mid-west.When the product arrived the envelope in which it was placed was open and had never been sealed..I followed the directions on the package but at this time i'm not sure it is working.Would not recommend this product
It brought TA down to 7.75 in Frontenac wine, perfect result.
I used this to reduce the acid level in a wild grape wine and it worked great. I will defiantly use again.
