This product is a direct replacement for our FIN74 - Ichtyocolle.
Recommended for whites, roses and fruit wines, Cristaline Plus is a blend of isinglass (fish-derived protein) and citric acid stabilized with SO2. Cristaline Plus has a strong positive charge which makes it very effective at improving the clarity of a wine (even those that are made from botrytised grapes). As an added benefit, Cristaline Plus can help improve the filterability of a wine. Cristaline Plus is not sensitive to cold temperatures and may be slow to finish settling. The use of Gelocolle (FIN64) an hour after the addition of Cristaline Plus will help speed the settling process and create a more compact lees.
To Use: Dissolve Cristaline Plus in 150-200 times its weight (75-100 mL) of clean, warm water (59-68 F/15-20 C)
Let mixture swell for 3 hours
If the solution is too viscous add additional warm water
Add the solution quickly into the whole volume of wine to be treated while stirring and mix well to distribute the Cristaline Plus evenly throughout the wine
Rack as soon as the lees are well settled (wait 72 hours before filtering or allow 8-10 days settling before racking)
Dosage Range: 15-30ppm (mg/L)
