YN-Rum is based on a non-diastatic, highly robust distillers’ yeast with high tolerance to temperature and osmotic pressure – formulated with a complete, chemically-defined nutrient complex, YN- Rum is optimised for sugarcane or molasses wash fermentations up to approx. 15 % ABV. Although primarily intended for use molasses or sugarcane juice, YN-Rum can be used with any fermentable sugar substrate for production of alcohol wash for up to approx. 15 % ABV.
For optimum results:
YN-Rum should be used to ferment sugarcane juice up to 15% ABV or molasses solution with a gravity of up to 1.150 (34.2 °Plato) to achieve a maximum ABV approx. 12%. The nutrient complex in YN-Rum contains all essential macro and micro-nutrients required for healthy fermentation, including nitrogen (urea-free source), phosphate, magnesium, B vitamins and trace minerals.
Fermentation of wash to produce rum or cachaça spirit. Organoleptic qualities: Wash fermented with YN-Rum has high levels of esters and yields a rum spirit with a rich and complex, well-rounded flavour and aroma profile. Note: Due to the osmotic pressure, maximum alcohol from pure molasses solutions is approx. 12% ABV.
