Introducing: CellarScience FermStart Yeast Rehydration Nutrient, FermFed & FermFed DAP Free

cellarscience

CellarScience FermStart Yeast Rehydration Nutrient, FermFed & FermFed DAP Free now available at MoreBeer

More Info

From the each product description, check product pages for current description, price and availability:

FermFed:

FermFed is a complex nutrient blend of diammonium phosphate, thiamin, amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, mannoproteins, protective microelements derived from yeast hulls, and vitamins B2, B5, B6, & B12. FermFed also contains the organic and inorganic nitrogen (DAP) that yeast need. Help your yeast reach the end of fermentation safely while producing amazing flavors with FermFed by CellarScience.

How Much Do I Add and When?
The general recommendation for most fermentations is to add 1 gram per gallon of FermFed DAP Free at the onset of fermentation and then add 1 gram per gallon of FermFed when nearing the end of fermentation. Simply mix the nutrients in a small slurry of water and add to the fermentation.

How it Works
The different components of FermFed work in different ways to feed and protect your yeast.
When yeast do not have enough nitrogen, they are more likely to produce hydrogen sulfide (rotten eggs). FermFed helps to eliminate this problem by providing enough nitrogen for most situations.
As yeast divide and multiply they get weaker and might not be able to properly finish fermentation as the alcohol content rises. Feeding them sterols help cells maintain membrane fluidity so that the yeast can properly function.
Mannoprotein molecules bind esters and terpenes and work as an anchor to keep them in solution so they are not driven off by CO2 during fermentation.
Pantothenic acid is added to help reduce the production of hydrogen sulfide.
Thiamine is important for yeast metabolism.
Vitamins B2, B5, B6, & B12 are important for general yeast health.

 

FermStart:

If you’re rehydrating beer yeast, it’s quick and easy to ensure a perfect ferment by adding FermStart by CellarScience. FermStart is a concentrated micronutrient blend that helps yeast during the critical phase in which they transition from dried and dormant back into healthy and active. FermStart is added to your rehydration water so that your yeast absorbs the nutrients as they absorb the water. When gravities exceed 15° Plato or 1.060 starting gravity, it is recommended to rehydrate your yeast. To ensure a perfect ferment that reaches its full flavor potential, rehydrate your yeast with FermStart.

How Much?
FermStart is a super concentrated formula, which is very convenient when you are rehydrating large amounts of yeast. Use 1 gram of Fermstart for every 4 grams of yeast. We offer some suggested ranges for the amount of water to use below.

Examples:
12g yeast – Add 3g FermStart to roughly 50ml of water
500g yeast – Add 125g FermStart to roughly 1500 ml of water

The Science of How it Works
FermStart is rich in readily assimilable amino acids, sterols, vitamins, and natural glutathione. Readily assimilable means that the size of the molecules present in FermStart are extremely small and easily absorbed by the yeast cell. This is obtained by centrifuge and allows FermStart to be extremely concentrated and not contain filler.

The availability of readily assimilable amino acids allows the yeast cell to skip the step in which amino acids would be synthesized within the cell. This saved energy is instead directed into multiplication. Faster yeast cell multiplication means a faster start allowing your yeast to out-compete wild yeast. Wild yeast have unknown flavors and fermentation behavior so it is important to give the yeast you selected the best chance to dominate the fermentation.

Sterols help the cell membrane regain and maintain elasticity helping to ensure a perfect start and continued performance throughout the fermentation. The strong cell membrane helps ensure that the yeast can survive and complete alcoholic fermentation under tough conditions.

Glutathione is a very special natural antioxidant and detoxifier made up of three amino acids cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. It is extremely important for maintaining intracellular health by preventing damage to cellular components during the very oxidative process of rehydration.

FermFed DAP Free Yeast Nutrient:

FermFed DAP Free is a 100% natural formulation derived from the autolysis of very specific yeast strains naturally high in free amino acids, sterols, mannoproteins, zinc, magnesium, and niacin, along with vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6, and B12 for a complete yeast health regimen. As the name suggests, this unique formulation does not contain the traditional inorganic diammonium phosphate, but does provide organically derived nitrogen. Help your yeast start fermentation on the right foot with FermFed DAP Free by CellarScience.

How Much Do I Add and When?
The general recommendation for most fermentations is to add 1 gram per gallon of FermFed DAP Free at the onset of fermentation and then add 1 gram per gallon of FermFed when nearing the end of fermentation. Simply mix the nutrients in a small slurry of water and add to the fermentation.

How it Works
The different components of FermFed DAP Free work in different ways to feed and protect your yeast.
The complex and organic nitrogen in FermFed DAP Free helps eliminates excessive yeast growth in the initial phases, reducing fermentation heat spikes at the start of fermentation.
Included sterols make the yeast membrane more resistant to alcohol and to high temperatures.
The collection of B-vitamins along with zinc and magnesium are essential for enzymatic activity, alcohol tolerance, and yeast health.
Mannoproteins help avoid the aromatic stripping during the fermentation by binding esters and terpenes and not allowing them to be driven off by CO2.
The included yeast hull components act as receptors to bind up fatty acids that can accumulate and cause stuck fermentations.

FermZilla Conical Fermenters – now available for pre-order!

FermZilla Conical Fermenter - 7.1 gal. / 27 L FE110

FermZilla Conical Fermenter – 7.1 gal. / 27 L via MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The new and improved FermZilla in 27L brought to you by the critical minds and engineers behind the original Fermentasaurus Gen 1. Although the original Fermentasaurus was revolutionary at the time of its conception, there’s always room for improvement. This is partly due to the strong community of Fermentasaurus users who have helped push for an improved conical unitank.

The FermZilla is the perfect option for brewers that want all the advantages of a conical fermenter without the price tag of a full blown stainless steel unit. It allows you to dump trub, harvest yeast, and with the addition of the FermZilla Pressure Kit, you can carbonate and serve – all in one vessel! The clear PET tank allows you to visually monitor fermenation activity and is pressure rated to 2.4 Bar (34.8 psi), which means you can ferment under pressure, reducing ester and fusel alcohols in your finished beer. This also gives the ability to perform pressure transfers. If you prefer to move your finished beer to a keg or other vessel, you can do so with little to no oxygen exposure.

New and Improved:
1. Larger Dump Valve – 3″ butterfly dump valve is more resistant to clogging from large amounts of trub
2. Larger Opening – 4.75″ top port opening allows for easier cleaning
3. Less Headspace – more appropriately sized for 5-gallon batches. Purging the headspace of oxygen is easier and more effective.

What’s Included:
FermZilla 27L Tank with Butterfly Dump Valve (Pre-Assembled & Attached)
Reinforced Stainless Steel Stand
Top Lid with PRV (35 psi)
1000 ml Collection Container & Lid
3-Piece Airlock
Graduation Sticker
Adhesive Thermometer
Strap Wrench
Spare Seals
Specs:

27 L (7.1 gal) Total Volume
Pressure Rated to 2.4 Bar (34.8 psi)
Height in Stand – 28.3″
Height w/ Airlock – 32.7″
Tank Diameter – 13.9″
Diameter in Stand – 15.7″
Please note: when using the FermZilla under pressure, you must perform a water pressure check to ensure your connections are leak proof. To do this, fill your FermZilla up with water, apply at least 15 psi pressure, and check for leaks around all caps and threads.
