Essential for any reds and Chardonnay
I like VP41 because I seldom have to jack the temps up to get it doing its thing. Measuring the right quantity for small batches can be a little challenging (6 gal-.25g), but If you've got multiple carboys to dose, it's not so bad.

What are the "Detalis & Instructions?

BEST ANSWER: VP41 is a direct inoculation culture. It is my understanding that you can add it directly to the wine but I did start mine in warm water like I would start a yeast culture. Check the pH of the wine first. If the pH is below 3.2, you need to get that up before starting the MLF. The MLF may not work at all if the pH is below 3.0 or SO is higher than 60 ppm. Check the scottlab.com web site for more details.
The package states for a 66 gal. dose. What if you only make 5 gal. batches?

BEST ANSWER: Mike,You can either use the wyeast 4007 option instead which is dosed out for 5/6 gal batches. This packet is very small - and the dose is for up to 66 gallons. If making less, just add the whole packet since it should be used upon opening and the larger dose should only help it convert malic acid faster!
