Startup™ is a non-DAP containing nutrient blend that provides the balanced nutrition for complete fermentation. It is also useful for stimulating slow or sluggish ferments.
Startup™ was formulated to provide all of the complex nutrition in Superfood®, but without inorganic nitrogen (DAP). It is perfect for musts that do not need extra nitrogen, or when winemakers want to add all their own DAP.
