 DistilaVite® GN is a complete nutrient blend to provide yeast with the correct nutrient balance for growth in beverage alcohol fermentations. It contains a proprietary blend of inorganic nitrogen (diammonium phosphate), organic nitrogen (free amino nitrogen derived from inactivated yeast), and key vitamins and minerals including thiamine, niacin, folic acid, magnesium sulfate and calcium pantothenate.DistilaVite® GN also provides sterols and unsaturated fatty acids, which lend alcohol resistance to the yeast.


DistilaVite® GN increases yeast budding and extends the exponential growth phase of yeast during fermentation to result in high yeast concentrations. Yeast consume sugars faster and produce alcohol faster during rapid cell growth, while highest concentration assures more complete utilization of sugars. The net result is more complete and more consistent fermentations, and more optimal alcohol production efficiency. This also helps to insure better consistency in yeast congener production, giving more reliability in flavor formation.


DistilaVite® GN is a free-flowing powder.


DistilaVite® GN is suitable for use in grain and sugar-based alcohol fermentations. It provides essential vitamins and minerals needed to extend yeast vitality and viability.

Yeast is a complex living organism and as such needs a balanced nutrient package to deliver high yield and a consistent congener profile. Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits studied the needs of yeast to propose a specific blended complex yeast nutrient, resulting in DistilaVite® GN.

  • DistilaVite GN can be used in beverage alcohol fermentation of various sugar-based feedstocks.
  • Variables typically found in molasses can be corrected in part by DistilaVite GN’s specific blend of nutrients therefore assisting distillers to obtain more consistent fermentations.
  • DistilaVite GN does not contain any urea.


DistilaVite GN supplements a series of important nutrients and bi-factors:

  • Di-Ammonium phosphate: to ensure the right level of nitrogen.
  • Magnesium sulphate: to help yeast develop an alcohol tolerance.
  • Inactivated yeast: to absorb natural inhibitors and supply lipids and sterols necessary to yeast.
  • Thiamine, folic acid, niacin, biotin and calcium pantothenate: bio-factors for good growth and fermentation.


The optimal DistilaVite GN dosage is variable according to individual distillery production processes.

  • Normal dose rate 0.25 - 0.35 grams per litre of mash (dosage: 250 - 350 ppm).

DistilaVite® GN can be added to the propagator, to the fermentor at start of fill, or part way through the fermentation when yeast budding begins to decline. Use 1 to 2 pounds per 1,000 gallons of mash (12 to 24 grams per hectoliter of mash).

In refined sugar fermentations (cane sugar, fructose syrup, converted pure starch sources), use at higher doses of 8 pounds per 1,000 gallons (100 grams per hectoliter), or at 4 pounds per 1,000 gallons (50 grams per hectoliter) if other external nitrogen sources are added.

Do not mix concentrated DistilaVite® GN directly with yeast or add to dry yeast during rehydration.
