The AWRI Ferment Simulator is a new free spreadsheet-based tool that allows winemakers to track fermentation rate, assess refrigeration and electricity demand and predict problem ferment behaviour so that early corrective action can be taken exactly when it’s needed. The AWRI’s Group Manager – Industry Applications, Peter Godden says that as a winemaker, the Simulator is one of the most valuable and relevant pieces of technology developed during his 17 years at the AWRI, and he would recommend it to all wine producers no matter the size of their crush. This webinar is designed to introduce potential users to the Simulator and its features, with demonstrations on how to access it, entering fermentation data to obtain ferment and refrigeration demand predictions and finally running ‘what-if’ simulations. The target audience is winemakers and lab and quality control personnel.
