When to Use

Post-fermentation up to 3 weeks before bottling.

Preparation & Use Instructions

Sparkolloid is used at the rate of 1 - 1.5 grams per gallon. To fine five gallons of wine, begin by measuring out 5 to 7.5 grams of dry Sparkolloid. Then take about 2 cups of water, stir in the Sparkolloid, and heat it on the stove in a saucepan.  Simmer gently for 15-20 minutes. Add the hot mixture into the wine. Stir gently, but thoroughly. Let stand three to four weeks and carefully rack away from the sediments of the Sparkolloid and the lees. It's a very fluffy sediment, so be prepared to lose an inch of wine.

Rate of Use

5 - 7.5 g per 5 gallons.

Molecular Charge and Molecular Targets

Positively charged. It is a proprietary blend including diatomaceous earth.  It neutralizes the repelling charge of particulate matter allowing aggregation and formation of compact lees. It does not remove desirable color constituents.
