Description

This product replaces our FIN73 - Polylact

Polycacel can be used both curatively and preventatively against browning and pinking in white juice or in wine under long term storage conditions. Polycacel helps improve wine color and overall organoleptic properties. A is a blend of polyvinylpolypyrolidone (PVPP), soluble postassium casein and micropulverized cellulose. This specific blend allows for more complete action on phenolic compounds while avoiding over-stripping the wine.

To Use:
Slowly mix Polycacel in 20 times its weight in cold water (do not use juice or wine). Allow the mixture to stand for 2 hours. For enhanced homogenization, gradually add the Polycacel to the wine container while mixing.

Dosages:
To protect from oxidation, add to wine and mix thoroughly: 150-300 ppm
To treat oxidized juice, add during cold settling: 300-700 ppm

which should you add first, polycacel or bentonite? How much time between the additions?
Del Long on Nov 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Del, we recommend you check out our "MoreWine!'s Guide to Red Winemaking" there is a free PDF available in the description, page 38 is the section for Fining. Here's an excerpt from the guide: "We strongly recommend conducting a bench trial first to determine which product gives the results you are looking for. Then, once this has been decided, do a second trial to determine the ideal dosage rate that will give the desired results for the least amount of product used."

How does one prepare a 500 ppm of this product?

BEST ANSWER: 500 ppm is 50g/hL = .5g/L. But I would check the math. Cheers
