Pathfinder N-Pure Nutrient 10 kg


Description and Function

Pathfinder N-Pure Nutrient provides all essential nutrients required by yeast for production of hard seltzer bases fermented from refined sugars such as glucose, dextrose, sucrose, and invert sugar syrup. N-Pure Nutrient can be used to ferment across a wide range of alcohol levels up to 14 % ABV or above.

Unlike malt and grain substrates which are nutritionally rich, refined sugar substrates are completely devoid of essential yeast nutrients, which makes use of supplements essential for fermentation. N-Pure Nutrient includes a high level of assimilable nitrogen from a urea-free source, along with phosphate, magnesium, B-vitamins and other essential micronutrients including zinc and calcium. N-Pure Nutrient contains only chemically defined ingredients and does not contain any unrefined nutrient sources, such as inactive yeast, which can negatively impact the flavour and aroma of fermented hard seltzer bases. When used in conjunction with an appropriate yeast strain,

N-Pure Nutrient will help ensure reliable and complete fermentation of a seltzer base with a clean neutral fermentation profile (note that organoleptic properties of the fermented base will also depend on the quality and type of yeast used).

Dosage and Application

If fermentation vessel has mixing facility, N-Pure Nutrient can be dosed directly into the fermentation media at the appropriate dosage. The dosage should be adjusted according to the target % ABV, with suggested guide dosages provided. If the fermentation vessel does not have mixing facility, N-Pure Nutrient can be pre-dissolved in 10x weight of warm water at 30-40˚C using the dosage information provided.
