Details

Sparkolloid is by far, our most popular and effective wine clarifier. Mix one tablespoon of sparkalloid into 1 cup of boiling water. Boil for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. While solution is still warm, mix into 6 gallons of wine and stir gently. For best results, wait at least a month before bottling. Size: 1 Lb.

Follow the instructions
Good for clearing Mead. A one step clarifier. Clears in 5-7 days. Keeps the wine vegitarian. Follow the instructions.

This stuff works great for meads.
Easy to use and works great. This batch of mead had sat a little cloudy for several weeks despite being finished. The instructions say to wait a week before bottling but this is how it looks only 48 hours in. I will wait the full week but I'd call it clear already.

FYI: 1 tablespoon of powder treats 5 gallons.

Works great
Did the trick with a melomel that wasn't clearing nicely. As with other reviews, does work in 1 week!

Works in a week
Makes wine sparkle clear, could be clearer even with a filter._x000D_A week and it's ready, but you can give it longer if you like.

Takes only a week
I love Sparkloid, but on the bottle it says allow 1 week to clear before bottling or racking. Not sure why everyone thinks it takes a month.

Nice job
Mix it correctly, and use it properly and it does a great job clearing up hazy wine._x000D_Don't just dump it in, read the directions for good results.

How would set up a trial to determine the best rate of addition for clearing 250 gallon tote of wine?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Here's answer: 50 tbs or roughly .6 lbs to 1 gallon boiling water. Use the"hot mix" type for wine. DO add it hot. This one gallon should clear the 250 gallons. Give it 5-7 days before racking.
FYI,I just extrapolated the directions. This does work for my 200 gallon batches.
I only do one gallon batches......would this sparkloid be good for that? If so how much would I use?
Sue M on Jan 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can still use it for a gallon batch. It won't hurt your wine if you add too much. It falls to the bottom of the wine bringing the fog/particles with it to clear the wine. You can start with maybe a teaspoon dissolved in boiling water and try that. If it's not completely cleared a week later you can try it again to get the rest.
Directions on bag say to dissolve 1 tablespoon in 1 cup of boiling water for five minutes and waIt one week to clear. The above directions say 15" in boiling water and 1 month to clear.bbefore bottling. Which directions are correct ? Thank you.
A shopper on Sep 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Scott Laboratories (the manufacturer) says this on their product page:

"To Use:

Heat water to boiling [1-2 gallons of water per pound Hot Mix Sparkolloid NF (8-15 L/kg)].

Slowly stir in the Hot Mix Sparkolloid NF. Maintain temperature above 82°C (180°F) while agitating the mixture constantly until all of the translucent globules of clarifier have been dissolved and the mixture is smooth and creamy (approximately 20-30 minutes).

While still hot, slowly add the mixture to the wine. This is easily accomplished by adding to a tank being mixed by a Guth agitator or by introducing the hot mixture into the line during a pump-over.

Let the wine settle one week or more, depending somewhat on the volume of wine involved.

Then filter, preferably from the top of the tank.

Storage: Keep tightly sealed and dry. Shelf life is 4 years at 18ºC (65ºF)."
At what point to you add this product? After primary fermentation?
