27 March 2020 8.30am: Please assume we are unable to send orders until further notice due to the Covid-19 Lockdown which currently restricts freight services to essential supplies only.

You can still shop! No payment required yet.  Shopping early will prioritise your purchase when we are able to ship again. When you go through the checkout process you will be able to place your order and the only "payment" option is "order now, pay later".

Our unlimited email support for customers continues during the lockdown because we are home-based.  If you did not purchase your products at makewine but require advice you can still purchase advice at our home winemaking advice page and of course browse our how to make wine at home pages for information.  Genuine pre-purchase enquiries are of course welcome.

If you are harvesting fruit you can freeze it for making wine once you are able to access supplies.  If making 5 litre batches we suggest you freeze in 2kg lots.  Most fruit can be frozen whole but do remove any bad spots.

Potassium Sorbate

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.
