Pectolase / Pectinase / Pectic enzyme - 400g
Pectin is ingredient of a very large number of fruits, and is the same protein that makes jam set. In the wine it has the effect of causing a haze that cannot be removed by standard finings. We recommend that you add pectolase at the beginning of the fermentation as it is deactivated by alcohol.
To avoid a pectin haze in your finished wine add 2 teaspoons per gallon.
To assist in the extraction of juice use 1 teaspoon per 1.8kg of fruit. All pectin should be destroyed in 8 hours at 20 degrees C.
