Malolactic fermentation of wines with immobilised lactic acid bacteria - influence of concentration, type of support material and storage conditions.


Corn cobs, grape skins and grape stems were evaluated as support materials for immobilization of the lactic acid bacteria Oenococcus oeni. The support materials with immobilized cells were further used in malolactic fermentation (MLF) of white wine. Viability of using the immobilized supports was evaluated in consecutive batch fermentations under different… (More)
