D-Lactic

About Our Test

Lactic acid bacteria are responsible for the malolactic fermentation that occurs in many wines, reducing the wine’s total titratable acidity, softening the wine, producing a broader palate of flavors,  and enhancing the wine’s microbiological stability . UNFORTUNATELY, these same bacteria may inhibit primary alcoholic fermentation and can cause lactic taint, biogenic amines, and bitter mousy, or ropy wines.  The D – Lactic Acid Test Kit has a range of 30 – 500 mg/L, equivalent to a range of 120 – 2000 mg/L with diluted samples.

REASONS TO USE D-LACTIC ACID TEST KITS 

  1. Tests can be used for both red and white wines, and require NO adjustments or pretreatments. Accuvin has developed a unique membrane, built into each wine test strip, which selectively removes interfering colored anthocyanins without affecting other wine components.
  2. Monitoring for contamination allows the detection of problems when they are small and require less expensive and less extensive intervention.
  3. Check must with the D –Lactic Acid test to determine excess contamination.
  4. Monitor D-Lactic acid during fermentation to check for growth of unwanted lactic bacteria, especially with sugar present and a STUCK FERMENTATION.
  5. Monitor D-Lactic acid throughout MLF to check for growth of unwanted lactic bacteria.
  6. Monitor D-Lactic acid during maturation to check for growth of unwanted lactic bacteria.
