Merry Christmas! Recommended date to place Christmas orders by 16th December 2019. We will be despatching orders throughout the Christmas period, but deliveries will only be on non-statutory days. We may not despatch orders containing yeast on Fridays or the day before statutory holidays.
Orders Containing Yeast: Please leave delivery instructions to avoid yeast sitting in sun or heat.
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.
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.
