DistilaMax®CN Yeast is selected on fresh sugar cane juice for production of rum and other sugar-cane based spirits

DistilaMax ® CN is a natural strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated by the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Brazil.

DistilaMax CN, due to its ability to work well on fresh sugar cane-juice and cane molasses is recommended in the production of all the types of aromatic and complex rums and rhum agricole.

DistilaMax CN displays a complex and well-balanced aromatic profile due to the production of key esters and phenyl-2 ethanol.

DistilaMax CN shows good tolerance to osmotic stress and performs well in adverse conditions, at high temperatures up to 40°C and a pH range 3.4 – 5.3.

  • Temp Range 25°C – 40°C
  • Very Robust
  • Short Lag Phase

Applications:

  • DistilaMax ® CN is a natural strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated by the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Brazil, under the reference UFMG 1007.
  • DistilaMax CN, due to its ability to work well on fresh sugar cane-juice and cane molasses is recommended in the production of all the types of aromatic and complex rums and rhum agricole.
  • DistilaMax CN displays a complex and well-balanced aromatic profile due to the production of key esters and phenyl-2 ethanol.
  • DistilaMax CN shows good tolerance to osmotic stress and performs well in adverse conditions, at high temperatures up to 40°C and a pH range 3.4 - 5.3.

Dosage:

  • The optimal yeast dosage is variable according to individual distillery production processes.
  • Fermentation of cachaça: 0.50 grams per litre of wash or juice (dosage: 500 ppm).
  • Fermentation of cane juice or cane molasses: direct pitching: 0.40 – 0.60 grams per litre of wash or juice (dosage: 400 – 600 ppm).

Instructions for Use:

Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits recommends the rehydration of DistilaMax XP.

  1. For rehydration, use a clean container. Do not use demineralized water.
  2. Rehydrate the yeast in clean water (the water should be 10 times the weight of the yeast and at a temperature of 32°C - 36°C).
  3. Suspend contents carefully by gently stirring and then wait for 15 - 20 minutes maximum (minimum 10 minutes) before moving onto the next step.
  4. Add this preparation to the wash. If there is a temperature difference of more than 8°C between the wash to be inoculated and the rehydration solution, add some wash slowly into the rehydration solution to reduce the temperature difference.
  5. Once the vacuum-sealed bag is open or broken, use yeast promptly.
