For superior clarification of wine
White, Red, Rosé, Fruit, Cider, Mead
Hot Mix Sparkolloid® NF 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 NF can be helpful in removing haze left by other fining agents and enhances filterability. Recommended Dosage Bench trials recommended
125–500 ppm 12–48 g/hL 1.0–4.0 lb/1000 gal
Heat water to boiling [1–2 gallons of water per pound Hot Mix Sparkolloid NF (8–15 L/kg)]. Slowly stir in the Hot Mix Sparkolloid NF.
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 Guth agitator (see page 103 for more info on Guth) 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.

Keep tightly sealed and dry. Shelf-life is 4 years at 18°C(65°F).
