Yeast Rehydration

Easyferm 25

The Easyferm® yeast rehyrdrator, since its development by JuClaS (Juice Clarification System), has proven itself an outstanding innovation for wineries seeking to obtain high viability and vitality of cells in their ferments. Also, through the development of the Pied de Cuvee feature, the current generation of Easyferm® unit can be used to prepare & acclimatize rehydrated yeast cells to the adverse conditions present in both sparkling wine & arrested fermentations to improve performances in both areas.   



  • Easyferm® is a skid-mounted mobile bioreactor with PLC control and engineering design features to optimize; rehydration fro up to 25kg of active dry wine yeast, the initiation of secondary ferment inn sparkling wines and resumption of fermentation in arrested primary fermentations. The key engineering and electrical features are;
  • A 500L (approx) reactor vessel that in combination with the hydraulic circuit elements, is able to heat the hydration water to a preset temperature for yeast rehydration. The vessel also has external brine bands for the introduction of coolant to produce the graduated acclimatisation to inoculation temperature.
  • Allen Bradley PLC unit with adjustable parameters for the rehydration and pied de cuvee functions
  • Hydraulic circuit including heaters in line with feed pump
  • Pneumatic actuated solenoids fro delivery of brine, water or wine & switching from circulate mode to discharge mode
  • Pneumatic nutrient pump for nutrient (MCR) & cleaning fluid introduction
