Description
For superior clarification of wine

Hot Mix 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. Hot Mix Sparkolloid can be helpful in removing haze left by other fining agents and enhances filterability.

Dosage

Bench trials recommended for wine

Wine: 12–50 g/hL

Usage

Heat water to boiling [1–2 gallons of water per pound Hot Mix Sparkolloid (8–15 L/kg)]. Slowly stir in the Hot Mix Sparkolloid. 

Maintain temperature above 82°C(180°F) 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. This is easily accomplished by adding to a tank being mixed by a tank agitator or by introducing the hot mixture into the line during a tank circulation.

Let the wine settle 1 week or more, depending somewhat on the volume of wine involved. Then filter, preferably from the top of the tank.

Storage

Dated expiration. Store in a dry, odor-free and well-ventilated environment below 25°C (77°F). Reseal opened packaging immediately.
