Rate of fermentation
BP 725 has a short lag phase and is a strong fermenter at warmer temperatures of 18–30ºC (65–85ºF). BP 725 displays a medium, steady rate of fermentation at cooler temperatures.
BP 725 is considered a moderate to high nitrogen consumer. When fermenting highly clarified juice (low solids) of high alcohol potential a nitrogen supplement(100mg DAP/L) or Mauriferm fermentation aid is recommended to ensure a healthy fermentation.
