(WY390) Often used by professional wineries when bulk aging their heavier red wines. Malo-lactic Culture contains a live liquid suspension of Oenococcus oenii grown in a sterile organic juice base. Malic acid reduction will balance and soften wine while enhancing flavor and aroma characteristics including vanilla and buttery notes. This blend will provide rapid and complete malic acid reduction in wine over a broad range of conditions. Malo-lactic conversion is generally completed within 1-3 months in a temperature range of 55-75 deg F. Culture slowly converts the malic acid that is naturally in the wine into a smoother tasting lactic acid. This can take several weeks or months to achieve a noticeable improvement. Comes in 125 ML package that is appropriate for up to 6 gallons of wine.
