Vitamins make yeasts healthier, promote survival, help avoid stuck ferments, and are useful in preventing sulfides. Nitrogen-deficient musts produce H2S because of interruption in amino acid synthesis, but research now shows that if there is enough nitrogen but a deficiency of pantothenate, MORE and WORSE-SMELLING sulfides form.
Vitamix® is pure vitamins for yeast. Testing vitamins in juice is quite expensive and takes weeks, so adding a vitamin blend can be good “insurance.
What’s the difference between Vitamix and Vitamix+?
Vitamix is pure vitamins for yeast.
Vitamix+ has the same vitamins as Vitamix, but in a nutritive base.
Which should you add?
Vitamix+ is best for higher-risk or difficult musts because of its extra yeast hulls for yeast growth and fermentation. Vitamix is the choice if you want vitamins only.
