Potassium Sorbate Stablizer - 1 oz - Treats 25-50 Gals - AKA Sobistat & Sorbic Acid

Recommended usage rate to inhibit yeast activity:

  • 150-300 ppm
  • 0.15-0.3 grams per liter
  • 0.6 - 1.15 grams per gallon

How to use:

Stir well into the racked wine before bottling.  SO2 levels should be on the high side (40-50 ppm) to help retard continued activity from the yeast.  It is important to understand that the sorbate will inactivate but not kill the yeast.  Removal of the yeast by means of fining, racking, and/or sterile filtration are all highly recommend to improve the bottle stability of a sweet wine.  Note that malolactic bacteria activity in the presence of the sorbic acid (from the sorbate) will result in an offensive fermentation aroma usually described as "geranium-like".  Thus, it is important that malolactic fermentation has been completed or inhibited at bottling time.
