Gusmer Enterprises Micro Elements ® Brewing Nutrient Tablets

Gusmer Enterprises Micro Elements ® Hard Seltzer HG Hard Seltzer Nutrient

A diverse blend of vitamins, minerals, polypeptides and amino acids that have been identified as essential precursors required to build yeast biomass, with 100% organic nitrogen, all compressed into a convenient tablet. Micro Elements Brewing Nutrients is based on the latest fermentation research and with the highest quality, bioavailable ingredients for maximum assimilation by the yeast. • Consistent Fermentations / Increase Attenuation / Improve Filtration • Maintain Yeast Population Viability

Micro Elements Hard Seltzer HG is a powder blend of complex fermentation nutrients formulated for high gravity seltzer fermentations. It is composed of organic and inorganic nitrogen, vitamins, trace minerals, sterols, amino acids, proteins and peptides. • High gravity seltzer fermentation (≥25° Plato) • Fast fermentation times • High alcohol yields • Neutral flavor and aroma profile Instructions for Use Rehydrate Micro Elements Hard Seltzer HG in 10X the weight in process water and mix for 10 minutes. Add the hydrated solution to the fermenter with the sugar base prior to yeast inoculation in one addition.

“We’ve been adding MicroElements Brewing Nutrient Tablets to our high gravity brews for the past several years. Previously, we would regularly get stuck fermentations and low viability during our fermentations of high gravity beers. The addition of these nutrient tablets virtually eliminated this heartache. The easy to use and measure tablet form is perfect for a high volume brewery like ours and keeps the brewers attention where it belongs. This is not to mention eliminating spillage. I would highly recommend these tablets anywhere yeast nutrient is needed.”

• Virtually No Dust, Easy-To-Use, Tablet Form A Unique & Notable Nutrient Unlike traditional yeast nutrient products, which contain a high percentage of inexpensive diammonium phosphate (DAP) and yeast hulls, Micro Elements do not contain DAP. Instead, our research team has found that our proprietary blend of pure vitamins, minerals and yeast extract gives superior fermentation performance. Breweries enlisted in product testing noted better yeast flocculation, increased yeast viability, higher RDF’s, increased rates of fermentation and positive sensory evaluation. Application
