A specialist active dried RUM yeast blended with a complete, chemically defined urea-based nutrient complex, containing all macro and micro nutritional requirements for the yeast, including nitrogen, phosphorous, magnesium, essential vitamins and trace minerals. This product also contains amyloglucosidase enzyme for conversion of dextrin sugars into fermentable sugars during the fermentation process.
RUM yeast can be used to ferment any fermentable sugar substrate up to 15% ABV, but best results are achieved using sugar juice or molasses.
Note that due to the osmotic pressure exerted on the yeast in a high gravity environment, the maximum alcohol achievable from a pure molasses solution is approx. 12% ABV.
The yeast strain selected for RUM yeast produces an optimum congener profile for rum spirit and is highly viable and robust, ensuring a short lag phase and reduced risk of bacterial infection. The inclusion of all essential nutrition for yeast fermentation requirements ensures optimum spirit alcohol quality through stress-free fermentation.
