Christmas deliveries and hours:  Last day to order to get your deliveries by Christmas for urban areas: North Island-Thurs 21st, South Island-Wed 20th.  Rural can take severa days longer.  Note these dates are aligned with delivery targets and are not guarantees.

We will be open over the Christmas break, but freight providers do not work on statutory holidays, so no deliveries will take place on statutory holidays.  We may not despatch orders containing yeast immediately to avoid yeast sitting on the network over a weekend or long weekend.

We will be answering support queries over the Christmas period within the 24 hour service standard.  However it may take longer than usual.

Hot weather and delivery timeframes:  With this very hot weather we are experiencing we may avoid sending items containing yeast over a weekend.  If relevant please include delivery instructions which avoid leaving orders including yeast sitting in the sun. Thanks for your understanding.

Merry Christmas!  Thanks for your business in 2017 and here's to a wonderful 2018.

Fermaid A Professional Winemaking Yeast Nutrient 30g

Fermaid A: professional winemaking yeast nutrient.  This is the product that professional wineries use and has been developed specifically for the New Zealand and Australian wine industries.  This is a relatively new product and is more scientifically advanced than other nutrients available to home winemakers.

Dosage is 1.5g per 5 litres (1 gallon) of wine (1/4 teaspoon is about right).  Note this is far less than doseage amounts for other nutrients.

Ideally use in conjunction with GO-FERM® Protect; but if you are going to use one or the other, then choose Fermaid A.

Fermaid A should be added about 1/3 of the way through ferment and it will provide organic and inorganic nitrogen along with a boost of minor nutrients and vitamins. Having said that, in deficient juices a “start of ferment” addition of Fermaid A can also be beneficial.

Fermaid A (especially if used in conjunction with GO-FERM Protect) will be far more reliable than DAP (diammonium phosphate), Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) or Tronozymol. None of those nutrients have amino nitrogen (Fermaid A does) which is essential later in the fermentation for preventing stuck ferments. Straight DAP will make the yeast grow and perform well at the start and middle of the ferment. However, because the yeast cannot store it (like they can amino nitrogen) there will be none available internally at the end of ferment when the yeast are unable to take up further nutrients.
