Fun Facts

Yeast biocapsules can be made in different sizes. Depending on biocapsule formation conditions and the purpose of the use of biocapsules, the biocapsules can be made to be the size of a salt grain to a ping pong ball.

Small biocapsules

Small biocapsules may be desirable when fermenting inside the bottle. For example, cava and sparkling wine made with the traditional method completes secondary fermentation inside a sealed bottle. In this case, smaller biocapsules will be ideal because they can fit in the mouth of the wine bottles. Once the fermentation is done, the small biocapsules can be easily taken out through the process of disgorging, where yeast sediment is collected at the neck of the bottle and removed from the wine.

Large biocapsules

Larger biocapsules may be optimal for fermentation in high volume tanks. A large size can facilitate viewing and handling of the biocapsule under industrial production conditions. This allows that in many occasions we avoid losses of important volumes of the alcoholic product and save in clarification systems.

In symbyo, just like how we can customize the type of yeastinside the biocapsules, we are able to customize the sizeof the biocapsules by tweaking some conditions during the formation process.
