“ I began using Gusmer CH16 malolactic bacteria for the harvest of 2007 and have been using it every harvest since then. Gusmer CH16 bacteria works extremely well in all of our varieties: Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Syrah and Chardonnay. When alcoholic fermentation has completed, I simply add the dry bacteria directly from the envelope to the barrels and replace the fermenting bung. The ML fermentations using CH16 are quick, clean and complete and don’t interfere with varietal character. ” Bob Mueller, Winemaker Mueller Winery - Windsor, CA
