Sparkolloid is an amazing wine clarifier made of poly-saccharides mixed with diatomaceous earth. Use 1 tsp per gallon. Boil Sparkalloid with 1 cup of water for 15 minutes and add to fermenter. Wait 1-2 weeks before racking.
A rough approximate of weight is 1 tsp = 1.1 grams. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.
- Heat water to boiling.
- Slowly stir in the Sparkolloid. Maintain temperature above 180°F (82°C) 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.
- Let the wine settle one week or more.
