Acti-ML® is a bacteria nutrient used during rehydration of the direct addition and standard malolactic bacteria strains. It was developed by the Lallemand bacteria R&D team led by Dr. Sibylle Krieger-Weber. Acti-ML is a specific blend of inactive yeasts rich in amino acids, mineral cofactors and vitamins. These inactive yeasts are mixed with cellulose to provide more surface area to help keep bacteria in suspension. Acti-ML can help strengthen the development of bacteria growth under difficult conditions.
Mix Acti-ML into 5 times its weight in 25°C(77°F) chlorine-free water. Add bacteria, then wait 15 minutes before adding the suspension to the wine.
Dated expiration. Store at 18°C(65°F). Once opened, keep tightly sealed and dry.
