Yeastex® 61 is a formulation of specific yeast nutrients to increase yeast viability and activity during fermentation, allowing the end of attenuation to be reached in a shorter time, and promoting consistent fermentation profiles.

Yeastex® 61 is a source of zinc and contains high levels of inorganic nitrogen, making it particularly useful when brewing with low FAN malts, high gravity fermentations, and the production of wine, cider and alternative beverages. Yeastex 61 should be slurried in a few gallons of water prior to its addition to the boiling kettle wort. It is added to the wort in the kettle shortly before “knock-out”. Choose Yeastex® 61 for cider, distilling processes, and high sugar adjunct brewing.

Application Rate: 40-100 ppm (4 g/hl-10 g/hl, or 1.0 lbs/100 bbls – 2.5 lbs/100 bbls)
