FERMOPLUS Fragrance is by definition a yeast nutrient. It supports consistent and reliable fermentations by ensuring yeast remain healthy and viable and perform optimally. However, it’s so much more than that – it’s a thiol-boosting yeast nutrient. Thiols, also known as mercaptans, are sulphur containing organic compounds first identified in wine, especially wine made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes, and now also discovered in hops
FERMOPLUS Fragrance was developed by bringing our extensive knowledge in the art and science of winemaking, of yeast and fermentation, and aroma and flavour chemistry.
Through its unique formulation and natural amino acids, FERMOPLUS Fragrance enhances the yeast’s natural ability to convert aroma compounds and release aroma-active thiol precursors through the process of biotransformation. Hop derived thiols are highly aroma-active and are responsible for the intense floral and fruity aromas found in New England-style IPAs, hop-forward pale ales, and hoppy lagers.
