I typically have used Lavlin 71B 1122 and normally it will go thru malo on its own and I will cold stabilize it after that.

I used BM 4X4 in the past and it really came out great for making some great red wines -

I would be interested to see how it would turn out - with the BM 4x4 -http://www.scottlab.com/product-45.aspx

opinions please

I think I just read in winemakermag that Bm4x4 is NOT good for mlf if the numbers aren't perfect. Wow, that helped [emoji15]

I would have considered Lavlin 71B 1122 as well. Honestly, I had issues with my Red Star Pasteur Red yeast my first year, and generally reach for Lavalin EC-1118 for my French American Hybrid juices. Of course, EC-1118 doesn't play well with Malo Ferm, so I'm curious to see how it turns out. If it works out I might try it.
