Paper Chromatograpy test kit used to tell if your malolactic fermentation has gone to completion. This information is essential knowledge for doing SO2 additions, cold stabilization, acid additions, etc on wines that have been innoculated with an ML strain or allowed to undergo natural malolactic fermentation. You will certainly want to know if ML has completed before bottling. Comes with 25 sheets, as many as 4 samples can be tested per sheet (must be tested simultaneously, sheets cannot be re-used).

Chromatography kit
This is a great way to determine if MLF is complete. We also have the fancy instruments but find this test easier to use

Great kit. Works perfectly. My drying time was longer than expected but once it dried I got perfectly readable results.

My first attempt at MLF was proven successful with this kit. Was easy to use and the results matched closely to was this kit illustrated.
Compared my results to example in the documentation that came with kit.  Very close!
I’m very pleased with this kit for my first MLF attempt.

This Kit Works Great
I've had my kit for over a year, and finally used it this past weekend. I found the directions thorough and clearly written. I tested several wines from different vintages - some that were inoculated with malolactic and some that were not. All my results were as expected and easy to read.

A few tips:

1. Placing each sample one inch apart, I was able to test seven wines on one sheet (it takes three slots for the acid standards). You could skip the tartaric standard and fit eight wines per sheet.

2. I was able to use each capillary pipette twice - I simply used one end for one wine, and then the other end for another wine.

3. For drying I hung mine under the kitchen cooktop exhaust vent and ran the vent over night. But only do this if your exhaust vents to the outdoors. You don't want to breathe the fumes.

4. I like that everything fits in the gallon jug. After the test I poured the solvent back into its bottle, washed the gallon jug, and put the whole kit back into it.
