Macerating enzyme for heavier, more extracted reds
Scottzyme® Color X is a unique pectinase with cellulase side-activities. These activities help release anthocyanins, polymeric phenols and tannins. In trials we have found the tannic extraction is coarser with Color X than with Color Pro. We therefore recommend using Color X when heavier tannic extraction is desired for longer aging. The color response of Color X is similar to Color Pro.
To Use: Dilute Scottzyme Color X to approximately a 10% solution in cool water. Sprinkle the solution over the crushed grapes or add during a pump-over before alcoholic fermentation. Best used before fermentation.
Storage: Store at 4°C (40°F) for 1-2 years. Keep tightly sealed and refrigerated once opened.Recommended Dosage

Scottzyme Color X will soon only be available in its 25kg format once the current inventory of 1kg bottles are depleted.
Going forward, for smaller volume projects, please consider Lallzyme EX-V or higher doses of Scottzyme Color Pro.
