Description
Bentonite for time‐saving use during fermentation, direct addition

FermoBent® PORE-TEC is a pure granular sodium-calcium based bentonite with low iron for the specific treatment of juice.  Because of its low iron content, fermentation on this particular bentonite is not only possible but encouraged.  Fermenting on bentonite improves the release of CO2 during fermentation.  The constant contact between the juice and bentonite may eliminate the need for protein stabilization before bottling.  This also helps to preserve aromatic varietals as protein fining takes place before volatile aromatics are made.

RECOMMENDED DOSAGE

Juice with moderate protein contents

500-1500 ppm

50-150 g/hL

4.2-12.5 lb/1000 gal

Juice with high protein contents and pH values

2000-3000 ppm

200-300 g/hL

16.7-25.0lb/1000 gal


DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Dissolve FermoBent® PORE-TEC in approximately 5 times its volume of water and mix vigorously to avoid any lumps. Allow the mixture to swell for 4-6 hours. Add to the juice during a good mixing.  Racking off of sediment before fermentation is unnecessary.   It will be separated of with the yeast at the end of fermentation.

PACKAGING and STORAGE
Dated expiration. Store in a dry, well ventilated environment at a temperature between 5-25°C (41-77ºF). Once hydrated, FermoBent® PORE-TEC should not be stored for more than 24 hours.
