Ammonia Ethanol control level 1
What is Ammonia and Ethanol?
Nitrogenous compounds play and important role in wine making, they serve as nutrients for growth and metabolic activity of yeast during fermentation. Yeast available nitrogen (YAN) is a vital component in fermentation, if too low can cause sluggish fermentations compromising the quality of the wine. Ammonia is the most important inorganic nitrogen source of YAN that is utilized by yeast. Therefore testing for ammonium ions is an important way of monitoring nitrogen levels and fermentation.
Ethanol is the principal organic by-product in fermentation and is crucial in the stability, aging and sensory properties of wine. Factors that control ethanol production are: sugar content temperature and yeast strain.
