NUTRIENTS FOR WINEMAKING

Wine and beer yeasts need plenty of oxygen at the start of a fermentation to promote a healthy aerobic fermentation. A supplement of nutrients including vitamin B are beneficial if brewing high-gravity beers or brewing with a high percentage of adjuncts, fluctuating temperatures or an imbalanced wine must.

Supplements become increasingly important in stronger mixes as the oxygen, nitrogen, fatty acid, and sterol requirements of the yeast increase. Supplements are also important when a high carbohydrate fraction is used, as when brewing with sugars, honey, rice, corn, or other adjuncts.

Without sufficient oxygen to promote an aerobic, the growth of new yeast cells is limited, which results in inferior, slow, or incomplete fermentations (sweet wine). The results of oxygen deficiency will be possible stuck fermentations, increased diacetyl (buttery flavor) and high levels of esters (fruity flavor) in beer.
