Christmas deliveries and hours: Last day to order to get your deliveries by Christmas for urban areas: North Island-Thurs 21st, South Island-Wed 20th. Rural can take severa days longer. Note these dates are aligned with delivery targets and are not guarantees.
We will be open over the Christmas break, but freight providers do not work on statutory holidays, so no deliveries will take place on statutory holidays. We may not despatch orders containing yeast immediately to avoid yeast sitting on the network over a weekend or long weekend.
We will be answering support queries over the Christmas period within the 24 hour service standard. However it may take longer than usual.
Hot weather and delivery timeframes: With this very hot weather we are experiencing we may avoid sending items containing yeast over a weekend. If relevant please include delivery instructions which avoid leaving orders including yeast sitting in the sun. Thanks for your understanding.
Merry Christmas! Thanks for your business in 2017 and here's to a wonderful 2018.
Potassium Sorbate is used in conjunction with Potassium Metabisulfite to stabilise your wine.
If you require a sweet wine and don't want to let your wine completely ferment; you can inhibit the yeast by adding 1 teaspoon of 10% potassium metabisulphite solution and 1/2 teaspoon of potassium sorbate per 5 litres of wine before bottling or storing your wine.
Wait until any fermentation activity stops before bottling. May take effect immediately or may take a day or more.
For bulk quantities 5kg to 25kg please check the wholesale section.
Potassium sorbate is effective against yeasts and moulds and can be used for a variety of preservative applications including food. It is more effective in acidic pH and it can readily be dissolved in water or other liquid.
