Use Kieselsol in conjunction with Chitosan to help clarify your wine or beer. Add to secondary for best results.
Add Kieselsol first at the rate of 1/4oz per 5-6 gallons, after the wine has been degassed, and stabilized. Make sure that it is fully degassed, if not Kieselsol may not clear the wine. Gently stir the wine for 20 sec while adding to wine. Wait 1-24 hours before adding Chitosan to the wine at the rate of 1oz per 5-6 gallons. When adding Chitosan to wine, stir gently for 20 seconds then leave to clear. Clearing generally takes 1- 2 days, some batches may require a few extra days. May not clear pectin haze or products made with hard water.
For best results always use Chitosan and Kieselsol together.
- 1/4 oz. per 5-6 gallons.
The liquid kieselsol is one of the clarifying agents used to help "clear" a wine. It is used when the wine has finished fermenting prior to bottling. When used correctly, kieselsol will produce a wine that is free from any haze. All of the prior particulate, typically suspended in the wine, falls to the bottom of the carboy as sediment if left undisturbed for about two weeks. A very helpful and easy finishing touch prior to bottling. Although kieselsol is usually provided as a fining agent in kit wines, I use it with much success in my country wines made from scratch.

My order came in faster than expected, I got exactly what I wanted, and Ill order products for Midwest again.
I had only used wine kits. I decided it was time to widen my wine education. I purchased all the components in the kits and made a awesome blueberry wine.
The order hasn't arrived at the post office yet and In I needed the Clarifier a couple of days ago,
