Many winemakers do not realize that a malolactic fermentation, commonly referred to as MLF, may be struggling to finish or completely stuck. This is usually due to poor monitoring practices or a misunderstanding results from monitoring analysis. Stuck MLFs occur frequently, and getting them to re-start can be a tricky practice for many winery operations.
If you’re currently a member of the Darn Good Winemakers, then we’ve already review good MLF monitoring practices. However, this session will review what to do when MLFs do not finish according to plan. While re-starting stuck MLFs takes a bit of trial and error, with a little patience and the right methodology, this information will help lead the MLF on a path to success.
In November 2019 (date and time TBD), the Darn Good Winemakers session will focus on remediating problematic MLFs in the webinar titled, “Re-Starting a Stuck Malolactic Fermentation.” What you’ll get out of this webinar:
- A review of what can go wrong during MLF.
- Options and steps for re-starting a stuck MLF.
- A copy of the “Re-Starting a Stuck Malolactic Fermentation (MLF)” DGW Cellar Tool in the live webinar session. This tool is usually reserved for DG Winemaking clients.
