Bentonite used to aid the clearing of cloudy wines. A naturally occurring clay. As It swells up in water it absorbs proteins in the wine, dragging them down to the bottom, thus helping clearing. Best used at the start of fermentation. Calcium bentonite is a useful adsorbent of ions in solution, as well as fats and oils. Used for clarifying wine, liquor, cider, beer, mead, and vinegar. Bentonite has the property of adsorbing relatively large amounts of protein molecules from aqueous solutions. Consequently, bentonite is uniquely useful in the process of winemaking, where it is used to remove excessive amounts of protein from white wines. Were it not for this use of bentonite, many or most white wines would precipitate undesirable flocculent clouds or hazes upon exposure to warm temperatures, as these proteins denature. It also has the incidental use of inducing more rapid clarification of both red and white wines. Can be added at any point in the process. Available as 100 or 200g tubs
