Malolactic Bateria Culture (MLF)

Use this product to induce a malolactic fermentation (MLF or malolactic conversion).  Malolactic fermentation will break the malic acid in your wine down to lactic acid resulting in a creamer mouthfeel and rounder flavour.

Please store in the freezer.  Will only ship Mondays to Wednesdays & will not ship this product to a rural address (if you purchase and a rural address is provided your guarantee will be waived). The culture needs to be put into a freezer as soon as the courier arrives. 
Unopened packets last at least 3 years in the freezer.
Once opened, tape packets tightly closed and return to the freezer; use them during the same vintage.

Viniflora Oenos (red/white/rose)
This is a versatile strain, intended for most wines. It has good all-round tolerance and a clean, classic flavour profile.

You can use this amount of culture in up to 250L litres of wine but being such a small amount it would be impossible to split it in to more than 2 or 3 batches of smaller amounts of wine. ie you could use this to innoculate 2 or 3 batches of 23 litres of wine

Simply add the culture directly to your wine after alcoholic fermentation.  Do not add sulphites or sorbate before the malolactic fermentation.
