Special Activation Feature
Once activated correctly (pH < 3.6) the fully viable bacteria suspension can be placed in a refrigerator at 4-5ºC for five days without any loss of cell count. This gives winemakers the flexibility to activate a larger suspension of bacteria and use it over the course of a week.
Simply remove the suspension from the fridge and measure out the volume required i.e. 90ml per barrel. Place remaining suspension back in fridge. Stir measured out suspension and let it warm to wine temperature, then inoculate.
