ABOUT THIS PRODUCT: (FIN210) This brand name clarifier is preferred by many winemakers. It has a positive static charge which allows it to drag negatively charged particles to the bottom. Works as a good follow up to our Speedy Bentonite which has a negative static charge. Or, it can be used on its own in white or blush wines to add brilliance and luster to its appearance. Before using this product you should siphon the wine off any sediment into a clean container.
1. For every gallon of wine to be clarified use one level teaspoon of Hot Mix Sparkolloid and 3 ounces of water.
2. In a pan bring the appropriate amount of water and Sparkolloid to a simmer for 30 minutes. Stir often. Do not allow the mixture to burn. Add more water if necessary.
3. Add the mixture to the wine while it is still hot. Add very slowly and stir until the mixture is evenly blended throughout the wine.
4. Let the wine set for 2 to 4 weeks, or until it has cleared. Siphon the wine off of the sediment.
EACH 2 OUNCE JAR: is sufficient for treating 40 gallons of wine.
INGREDIENTS: A proprietary blend of polysaccharides and diatomaceous earth.
Q Laura (Millington, TN)
Can this product be used with chokecherry or concord grape wine (red wines)? The description says white or blush wine. Just wanting to double check myself.
Our Hot Mix Sparkolloid can be used on red wines. However, it would be best to first treat the red wines with a dose of Speedy Bentonite, then follow with a treatment of Hot Mix Sparkolloid.
Q Colton (Bent, NM)
For the best results, at what temperature should the wine be when using the Hot Mix Sparkolloid?
For the best results in clearing the wine, the wine should be at room temperature when using the Hot Mix Sparkolloid.
