Accuvin Malic Acid
Testing malic acid helps to determine if a malolactic fermantation is finished.
The Quick Test Malic Acid test kit monitors the decrease in malic acid from 500 mg/L to 30 mg/L, indicating the
completion of malolactic fermentation, No color indicates a malic acid concentration at or near 0 mg/L.
Malolactic fermentation, the secondary fermentation of winemaking, is a method for reducing total titratable
acidity by adjusting the relative concentrations of L-malic and L-lactic acids, softening the wine and allowing it
to develop mellowness and full-bodiedness, This process also results in enhanced microbial stability since one of
the key nutrients of spoilage bacteria, malic acid, is removed.
