To meet rising demand and continue to keep quality at the fore-front, Gusmer Enterprises undertook one of its biggest expansions in the last 25 years, in late 2009. This expansion was focused on its quickly growing line of fermentation nutrients, MicroEssentials™. The expansion, which took the better part of six months is said to have increased Gusmer’s nutrient production capacities by more than 200%. The expansion included new production and packaging equipment to further automate and streamline the process. Most importantly, this expansion included Gusmer’s tablet line, which supports its tablet form, time-release nutrients MicroEssentials Complete-TR and MicroEssentials Boost-TR. Not only is the time-release aspect of these products a revolutionary change to how traditional nutrient additions are made, it is also a much more efficient way of dosing nutrients. “Everyone knows that sequential nutrient additions are the best way to feed fermentations,” says Lars Petersen, Technical Director for Biological Products. “Complete-TR and Boost-TR use time-release technology to allow winemakers to make a ‘sequential addition’ in one dose.” The steady level of nutrient application from Complete-TR and Boost-TR bring steadier fermentations as well as fewer cases of off characters such as H2S. Gusmer Enterprises, Inc. has served the wine industry for over 85 years and is proud to continue to be one of the only US manufacturers of fermentation nutrients.
To complete its range of specific nutrients and to respond to market trends that tend towards more natural inputs derived from grape or wine constituents, LAFFORT has developed Nutristart® OrganiQ, a complete and complex nutrient for alcoholic fermentation in wine.
For your next harvests, LAFFORT offers Zymaflore AlphaTD n.sacch, a non-Saccharomyces yeast from the Torulaspora delbrueckii species: genuine expression of yeast biodiversity. Torulaspora delbrueckii, a species initially present in natural bloom flora, is a non-Saccharomyces yeast with no organoleptic defects, helping, in association with a S. cerevisiae, to restore yeast complexity during pre-fermentation and fermentation phases, producing richer wines from a sensorial perspective and ensuring fermentation safety.
Lechler Inc.’s Gyro Tank Cleaning Nozzle is our largest free spinning model and is designed to clean medium to large size tanks from 10 to 20 feet in diameter. It is the high capacity work horse of the Lechler tank cleaning product line. This long-lasting nozzle is built from FDA-compliant 316 grade stainless steel material and contains PTFE bearings, which are easily-replaceable and can further extend its service life. With its higher flow capacities, the Gyro can effectively clean while operating at lower inlet pressures. The combination of the Gyro’s flow capacity, free spinning design, and movement and impact of the cleaning fluid creates an efficient cleaning process for tanks used in such applications as grain processing, ethanol production, chemical storage, headbox cleaning in paper machine production, and brewery processing. The self-lubricating and self-cleaning nature of the free spinning Gyro makes it an excellent candidate for CIP processing. The Gyro has proven its effectiveness over decades of use in countless tank cleaning applications.
The Vinfinity Wine Preservation System is the only system available that pulls an ideal vacuum in a wine bottle in less than 2 seconds. And preserving wine is the key to running an effective and profitable Wine-by-the-Glass (WBTG) program in a restaurant or bar, according to wine authority John Blazon, who states “Wine preservation is key for the success of any serious restaurant. Period.”
Guala Closures Group, Alessandria, Italy, has created a ‘Tamper Evident’ wine screwcap, a closure featuring a colored plastic ring that appears in the narrow space between the glass bottle neck and aluminium skirt once the screwcap has been opened. A slightly different aesthetic in the tamper evident area differentiates this new closure from the standard one, but the application, glass finish and pour remains unaffected by the new technology. These closures aim to provide a solution to the ongoing problem of counterfeit wines. For more information, please call +020 8747 2071 or visit www.gualaclosures.com.
London, United Kingdom, (June 23rd, 2010) – The first panel discussion organized by the O2inWines™ association took place during the London International Wine Fair on May 18th. It drew an audience of almost 150 attendees; surprisingly enough for a not so technical environment, showing that interest for this topic is growing in the wine industry. “Organizing this panel discussion during a non-technical fair was a real gamble, as the subjects covered by our specialists were scientific ones”, stated Olav Aagaard from Nomacorc and president of O2inWines™. “But in spite of that, and because our panelists used of a non-technical vocabulary, the panel discussion was a great success both on the number of attendees and the quality of the discussions held. Besides, for those who could not attend, we twitted the event all along!” The debates led by Jamie Goode, famous wine writer, whose blog www.wineanorak.com is one of the most popular on the net today, showed the impact oxygen can have on wine quality from grape reception to wine tasting by the consumer. First, Andrew Markides, from Lallemand Australia Ltd and a world yeast specialist explained the importance of oxygen management throughout the whole fermentation process and especially at the early stages of winemaking. The introduction of oxygen at one third of the fermentation process helps the yeast cell membrane, its key structure, to strengthen and resist to the attacks from ethanol, so as to achieve the fermentation to the desired dryness. When oxygen comes in, all the available yeast have the opportunity to take up that oxygen and produce the sterols and unsaturated fatty acids that make up the membrane flexibility and function.
