For Superior Clarification of Wine.
Sparkolloid is specially formulated to clarify wine without impacting aroma, body or flavor. It can be used after bentonite or carbon fining to help compact lees. Sparkolloid can be helpful in removing haze left by other fining agents.
Sparkolloid is an amazing wine clarifier made of poly-saccharides mixed with diatomaceous earth. Use 1 tsp per gallon. Boil Sparkalloid with 1 cup of water for 15 minutes and add to fermenter. Wait 1-2 weeks before racking.
A rough approximate of weight is 1 tsp = 1.1 grams. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.
- Heat water to boiling.
- Slowly stir in the Sparkolloid. Maintain temperature above 180°F (82°C) while agitating the mixture constantly until all of the translucent globules of clarifier have been dissolved and the mixture is smooth and creamy (approximately 20-30 minutes).
- While still hot, slowly add the mixture to the wine.
- Let the wine settle one week or more.
- Then filter, preferably from the top of the tank.
Use 1/3 oz per 5/6 gallon batch for beer or wine
Storage: Keep tightly sealed and dry.
