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. 1 oz. package.

BSG Pectic Enzyme
Like using this pectic enzyme since it dissolves nicely. I add this to the cooled must before the final ingredient (yeast) is added.

Really nice product
Was recommended by a friend and I'm very happy with the results. Usually I just let brew clear on their own but this really made a difference!

use for melomels
I make mead (honey wine), and when making a melomel (mead with fruit), I put this in the must the day before pitching the yeast and it helps with clearing by breaking down the pectin in the fruit.

Increases clarity
Any time I use fruit in wine or mead or cider i add some pectic enzyme before pitching the yeast. I let it sit an hour or two and this helps make the final product more clear and reduces haze. I'm hoping this keeps it tasting better longer as well.

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.
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.
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.
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.
