Swapped EC1118 for BM 4x4 in a RJS EP Trio Red yesterday. Rehydrated in water and added 1 TBS of Fermax Nutrient to help it get going and have Fermaid O on hand for next treatment now. This sound ok? First I’ve used it. Thanks.
Yes I added the nutrient into the must...lol. Not into the rehydration. It has taken off and appears it is indeed aggressive. Thank you.Assuming that you added the 1 TBS of fermax the 6 gallons of wine, it sounds like you did good. BMX 4X4 is an aggressive fermenting yeast like EC 1118 so you should see fermentation beginning within 24 hours. I've made the same yeast substitution several time and have had good results.
