Servomyces D50 is a naturally enriched single-strain brewing yeast (from the prestigious Hefebank Weihenstephan) that is used as a biological yeast nutrient. The propagation and drying process of Servomyces D50 has been specifically designed to accumulate a range of trace minerals and elements that are essential or limiting during alcoholic fermentation.
Classified as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a top fermenting yeast.
Typical Analysis of Servomyces D50 per gram:
- Percent solids: > 93%
- Zinc: 50,000-60,000 ppm
- Contains inactive brewer’s yeast
- Does not contain GMO materials
Minerals, when incorporated into some sort of living tissue, are more efficacious than when presented as a salt. Servomyces D50 presents better bio-availability of minerals, which is a very important factor in yeast nutrition.
- Can decrease fermentation time significantly.
- Improves yeast sedimentation.
- Stimulates uptake of maltose and maltotriose, depending on the brewing strain,
- which results in higher alcohol yields
- Stimulates protein synthesis and yeast growth which leads to higher biomass
- production during propagation
- Eliminates harsh sulfur notes and produces a smoother more balanced beer
Why Dry Yeast?
Yeast regularly contains under 7% water while dry brewing. Rigid standards of quality are upheld during processing to refrain from microbial pollution. The exceptional strength of dry yeast takes into account rigorous QC testing to guarantee that under 1 wild yeast cell or bacterium per million cells of yeast is detected while brewing.
When it comes to most strains, 1g of dry yeast includes at least 5 billion suitable cells; however, the figure will shift marginally depending on the batch. Please contact us with any questions.
