Ey2d Malolactic 4221

$8.95

The Wyeast 4221 Ey2d Malolactic wine yeast comes from the species Oenococcus oeni. It is actually a liquid suspension of Oenococcus oeni grown in a sterile organic juice based nutrient enriched medium. It will provide a rapid and complete malic acid reduction in high acid wines.

The malic acid reduction will balance and soften wine while still enhancing flavor and aroma, particularly the characteristics of vanilla and buttery notes.

Malolactic conversion is generally completed within 1-3 months.

Ey2d Malolactic is an excellent choice for white wines and was isolated specifically for its tolerance to low cellar temperatures.

Optimal Temperature Range: 55-75 F
