Due to sensitivity to freezing temperature, we may not ship Kieselsol certain times of year
Kieselsol acts as a flexible fining agent for wine and juice. It can effectively remove phenolics and peptides in fruit wines and juices. Kieselsol is a uniformly dispersed liquid — no mixing required.
It is recommended for use in:
• Fining applications requiring a high degree of fining action, where water addition may be a limitation
• Beverages usually difficult to clarify by other agents
• Fruit wine clarification
Kieselsol is often used in conjunction with other fining agents, such as Chitosan. Kieselsol comes in liquid form and should be stored at room temperature. Do not freeze.
For use in Spinzall:
Most liquids products need to be pre-treated with clarifying aids in order to work in the Spinzall. If the enzyme pre-treatment (using Pectinex Ultra-SPL) is adequate, you will see a “break:” cloudy patches separated by areas of obviously clear liquid. If you see this break, you are ready to spin. Note: you may see a break in as little as five minutes. If you do not see a break, you may need to additionally treat your product with the wine fining agents Kieselsol and Chitosan. Kieselsol and Chitosan work by making the solids in your product clump together into larger particles that are easier for the Spinzall to spin out.
