Do the micro oxygenation should be stopped before the MLF ?

9 months ago

Hi, I did find this question about Micro-ox and MLF, would like to have your thoughts about this

"Micro oxygenation is typically done before MLF. it should be stopped before the end so that the MLF bacteria can consume the aldehyde generated by oxygen"

Is that true ?
