The Gooey Mess - Bentonite
March, 2005 Filed in: Wine making
If you are like me you probably hate lumpy gravy, or lumpy anything. Do you have problems with getting the lumps out of your Bentonite even if you follow the instructions? Try this method for lump-free Bentonite. Boil 500 mls. of water and pour into a large glass measuring cup (1 litre). Slowly add the Bentonite to the hot water mixing it with a fork or whisk. Cover the measuring cup with saran-wrap and let it sit overnight. Stir it once again and pour this lump free mixture into your sterilized primary.
