Project description
Stuck and lagging fermentations are found periodically in the South African wine industry. There are numerous causes including incorrect choice of yeast strain, incorrect yeast rehydration procedures, incorrect temperature control during fermentation, inadequate yeast nutrition and high ethanol levels during the latter part of fermentation. Another reason may be an imbalance between fructose and glucose, especially near the completion of high sugar fermentation, making it impossible for the glucophyllic Saccharomyces cerevisiae wine yeast to ferment.

The aim of this project is: the use of fructophyllic yeasts to alleviate the glucose-fructose imbalance during a stuck or lagging fermentation to use fructophyllic yeasts for the prevention of lagging and stuck fermentations where glucose-fructose imbalances can be predicted.
