The original and reliable FERMAID® K is a blended complex yeast nutrient that supplies inorganic nitrogen (DAP), organic nitrogen (alpha amino nitrogen derived from yeast extract), key nutrients (magnesium sulfate, thiamine, folic acid, niacin, biotin and calcium pantothenate) and inactivated yeast.

It is best to add FERMAID® K over two additions. The first addition is made at the end of the lag phase (6 to 12 hours after yeast inoculation) and the second addition is made around 1/3 sugar depletion (the end of exponential growth and the beginning of the stationary phase).

With proper rehydration and handling, the yeast cell population should be at least 4 million cells/mL at inoculation. By the time the second FERMAID® K addition is made, this population should have grown to about 100 million cells/mL. It is critical to remember that yeast are still reproducing during the stationary phase, and to do this effectively, especially in high sugar musts, they need oxygen as well as the components of FERMAID® K, including nitrogen (for protein synthesis), sterols and fatty acids (for maintaining alcohol resistance and permease activity). In addition, the inactivated yeast cell walls in FERMAID® K adsorb medium-chain fatty acids that are toxic to yeast, and provide nucleation sites to help keep the yeast in suspension.

Outstanding yeast nutrient for wine, mead, and cider

Fermaid K is what I use to keep the yeast "happy," especially when I'm making mead or using a yeast with a higher nutrient requirement. Has eliminated my stuck fermentations and VA production.

Eric Janecek

Package arrived with a broken lid and contents spilled out inside the box.

Got K?

A must for feeding and speeding up molasses fermentation. Glad I am using this product.

It is what it is

It's as described, but it doesn't come in a jar, just in a bag, which was somewhat of a disappointment.
