DistilaMax® HT is an active dry yeast for use in many types of beverage alcohol fermentations. It contains a selected strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae distillers’ yeast in a highly concentrated and stable form.
DistilaMax® HT was selected for itsresistance to high fermentation temperatures, and also shows good tolerance to high-gravity mashand high alcohol concentrations.
DistilaMax® HT is an active dry yeast for use in many types of beverage alcohol fermentations and is especially suited for glucose based feedstocks (most grain and starch-based mashes).
DistilaMax HT is recommended for use in the production of vodka, neutral spirits and light flavoured beverages, due to its low production of higher alcohols, aldehydes and esters.
DistilaMax HT has been selected especially for its ability to give good fermentation kinetics even under high-stress conditions, including high fermentation temperatures, high-gravity mash and high alcohol concentrations.
DistilaMax HT ferments well at temperatures up to 37°C and will continue to actively ferment at alcohol concentrations above 16 percent by volume.
The optimal yeast dosage is variable according to individual distillery production processes.
Normal dose rate 0.15 - 0.25 grams per litre of wort or beer (dosage: 150 - 250 ppm).
Instructions for Use:
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).
Suspend contents carefully by gently stirring and then wait for 15 - 20 minutes maximum (minimum 10 minutes) before moving onto the next step.
For rehydration, use a clean container. Do not use demineralized water.
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.
Once the vacuum-sealed bag is open or broken, use yeast promptly.
Storage, Handling and Packaging:
DistilaMax HT should be stored in a cool and dry area away from heat and direct sunlight for maximum stability.
Shelf Life: 3 years from date of manufacture if vacuum-seal is not broken.
