Servomyces is a nutritional yeast supplement (GMO free) that was originally developed for German brewers by Weihenstephan and Munich University. It conforms to the restrictions of Reinheitsgebot. Servomyces enables any yeast strain's ability to incorporate essential nutrients into its cellular structure. Tested in breweries around the world, it has been proven to:
•Cuts down fermentation time
•Greatly reduce harsh sulphur notes
•Improve the health and viability of yeast.
•Reduce levels of diacetyl at the end of primary fermentation
•Produce faster, more complete attenuations
•Increase yeast production for a better harvest
•Improve the quality of the finished product
For commercial brewers, Servomyces is available in 20 packs of 10 grams or 500 gram packages. For homebrewers, Servomyces is available in blister packs of six capsules, each of which can be used for a 5-gallon batch (20 to 25L). Servomyces is beneficial to beer, wine, mead and cider.
(Homebrew notes: Add 1 capsule 10 minutes prior to the end of the boil. OR, If your fermentation does not require a boil, open the capsule and pour in the Servomyces, since the capsule requires boiling to melt.
Sold in blister packs of 6
Add servomyces to your beer to increase yeast health because healthy yeast make better tasting beer.
Other benefits include a decrease in fermentation time and increased alcohol potential.
Servomyces stimulates the uptake of maltose which results in drier beer with higher alcohol yields. It is made by saturating beer yeast with zinc and then drying it. Zinc is a missing nutrient in wort and is more readily absorbed from dead yeast cells than by adding it directly as a mineral.
Originally available only to professional brewers, this wonderful yeast nutrient is now to the homebrewing community, thanks to White Labs and Lallemand.
Servomyces was developed in Germany at the Weihenstephan brewing school and the Munich University, so of course it conforms to the German Purity Law!
Contains 6 capsules good for 5 gallons of wort each.
Add Servo in the last 10 minutes of the boil. If your ferment does not require a boil ( as in a mead), open the capsule and add the Servomyces directly.
