Silica gel for improved settling
Gelocolle is an aqueous solution of suspended silica commonly used in conjunction with gelatins, isinglass and other organic fining agents. It helps compact lees and reduces the risk of over-fining. It is also useful for hard-to-filter wines where it helps chelate proteins and other compounds.
To Use: Gelocolle should be added directly into the wine 1 hour after fining with organic fining agents. Mix thoroughly.
Storage: Dated expiration. Store in a dry well ventilated environment between 10-20ºC(50-68ºF). Gelocolle solidifies at temperatures of less than 0ºC(32ºF). This process is irreversible. Once opened use immediately.Recommended for use with:
