* Required Fields



Pectic enzyme breaks down the pectin's in fruit, makes the crushing or pressing more efficient. It also reduces pectin's hazing effect in wine which leaves you with a brilliant, clear wine when fermented properly. Pectic Enzyme may also be added to red grape must to help extract tannin from the fruit skins. Do not add this enzyme with bentonite, as this will negate the effect.

off label use
I had a batch of local peaches fermenting in a five gallon carboy and it would not clear. After 7 months and three more rackings, it looked almost identical to the way it looked when I first put it into the secondary. I searched the internet and could find no help. An "old timer" suggested re-treating with pectic enzymes. Figuring that I did not have any other choice, I did. Two days later it was crystal clear with no noticeable affect on the taste.

Clear as Day
Makes the wine clear. Necessary in fruit wine making. select the larger size and avoid ordering as often. Clean up the haze and present excellent wine to others with this Pectic Enzyme.

Works fine
The enzyme breaks fruit down very well, and it make it easier to press. Also eliminates thr haze. And don't use with Bentonite.

Very Happy
I purchased this pectic enzyme for use in a strawberry ale rather than a wine but I was very happy with the results. I added it to the carboy during secondary fermentation and my beer came out quite clear.

Great for clear fruit beer.
This product reduces the chill haze that is generated by pectins that is found in fruit. I guess you can use it in wine but I use it in fruit beers. This product greatly reduces the haziness that appears in beers that have fruit in them. I would definitely suggest using this if you are planning to make a beer with fruit in it.

Makes fruit goop
Add this to your primary fermentation along with the fruit and within two weeks you will have a layer of fruit goop at the bottom of your fermenter (a good thing). Better out of your bottles than in your wine glass. Bottom line: does what it says it does. works like a charm.

Must have
Works by breaking down pectins, pretty useful little enzyme. Before using this I froze fruit to break down the cell wall. As for tannins I use egg whites to cut down on those.

Must have for ciders
Have used in my meads and ciders. Works very well at clearing the haze from the final product. Great stuff.

Does that mean when using Bentonite not to use Pectin Enzyme or can you use both during fermentation?

BEST ANSWER: You can use both bentonite and pectic enzyme when brewing. I would recommend when using bentonite to add it right away before primary fermentation as this helps to clear wine and ciders. Pectic enzyme is useful for reducing pectin in fruit beers wines and ciders. Pectin that naturally occurs in fruit can cause cloudiness and a haze so using pectin enzyme will help to eliminate this. I personally would use both when making anything with fruit in it.
This product hardened in its container. Any way to prevent hardening?
P A on Jan 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The best way to prevent hardening is to keep it in a dry place. Other than that, shaking it up a little every few months wouldn't hurt.
when can you add pectic enzyme ?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You add this at the start of fermentation. That is if you are using fruit as a base
to start the wine. It also helps clear the wine, but should not be used as just a
clarifier after the wine has worked it way to the end.
What is the shelf life of this product in the refrigerator?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2017

It will start to degrade after a year.
Is there any harm in adding too much pectic enzyme?
J W on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For the most part, no. If adding too much to a red wine with skins, you could extract too much tannin which could harm the flavor.
