Product Details
Pectic Enzyme physically destroys pectins, which constitute the "fleshy" part of most fruits such as grapes, and apples. Adding it to a wine must will break down the pulp, making pressing more efficient. Adding it to red grape must will aid in the extraction of tannin from the skins. It can also abate pectin haze in wines and cider. Use 1/2 teaspoon per gallon.

Great for Clearing a Cider
This worked really well for clearing up a hard cider that was not responding to cold crashing/benonite. I will be using for all future ciders/meads.

Used for Clearing up a Cider
Bought this to help clear up the haze in a hard cider and it did the job just fine. I would definitely recommend this for those making a hard cider.

do i add the pectic enzyme before or after pitching the yeast in a batch of fresh pressed cider?
A V on Nov 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting us with the question Art. Pectic enzyme can actually be added at any point really as long as you are not going to hear the cider after adding. Usually if you are going to sulphite the cider wait 24-48 hours and then add yeast you want to add the pectic enzyme with the sulphite. Or when you add the yeast or after fermentation is done. I hope this helps!
