Polyclar VT (PVPP)

Polyclar VT (PVPP)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

A non-soluble clarifier that removes both haze causing polyphenols as well as yeast cells. Mix 2 Tbls (or 5 g) with one cup of sanitized warm water and gently stir into five gallons beer. Let stand for a few days and rack off.

Polyclar VT is a coarser grade of PVPP (140 micron particle size), optimized for addition to vessels, where faster settling is required. The larger particle size also facilitates settling of the stabilizer, allowing the majority of the product to be left behind with the lees at racking.

A typical contact time of between 3 to 10 days is required, although there are no adverse effects from leaving Polyclar in contact with the wine for longer periods.

For wine use .5 to 2.5 grams per gallon depending upon severity of problem and desired affect.

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.

Out of Stock
I ordered and paid for a product that was never in their inventory and when I asked...the response was we are not sure when we will get it. So, 2 months later I received my money back.

Did not work
Bought and used to clarify a 5-gallon batch of homebrew. After 5 days there has been no change - the beer is as cloudy as ever. This was a first attempt so I will try again but I am disappointed.

Helps oxidized wine
I am fairly new to winemaking. After reading on a forum that this could be helpful, I decided to give it a try. I had 15 gallon of Brunello that was slightly oxidized from racking a few months earlier. Apparently I wasn't careful enough. Anyway, I dosed it with this and waited 7 days. Then I filtered it with a 5 micron polypropylene filter setup that came with my allinone wine pump I recently bought. It made a huge difference! I was so close to dumping the wine but this made it drinkable. I will use this in the future if needed but hopefully I won't have the issue again.

The jury is still out. Waiting to see if it will have any effect on a wine that I’m trying to improve
