Yeast Lalvin BM4x4 - 50g

Lalvin BM 4X4 is a blend of BM45 and a complimentary strains chosen by Lallemand to provide all the advantages of BM45 with even greater reliability under difficult conditions.

Lalvin BM4X4®: The attributes of Lalvin BM45 with optimized fermentation capacity BM45 is known and appreciated around the world for its round mouthfeel and stable color (see above description for BM45). However, BM45 is a slow fermenter and can require substantial nutrients to complete fermentation successfully and without the production of sulfides.

While BM45 has a very strong following among winemakers who enjoy its slow fermentation and its suitability for long maceration programs, there are others who desire the attributes of BM45 but with a more timely and secure fermentation. BM 4X4 achieves this goal. During the yeast growth phase, BM 4X4 has the unusual capacity of releasing a significant quantity of polyphenol-reactive polysaccharides into the fermenting must.

The quantity and the quality of the polysaccharides released during fermentation facilitate the production of red wines with great mouthfeel and improved color stability, with dependable fermentation kinetics under difficult fermentation conditions. In whites, BM 4X4 releases a high level of esters responsible for fruit aromas. It also brings roundness to the mouthfeel and facilitates malolactic fermentation.
