This 3kg granular Pectolase mix is suitable to treat between 12000 and 24000 kg of fruit.

The pectolase mix is used to break down pectin and proto-pectin in fruit to:

  • increase the juice yield from fruit and to
  • enhance the amount of fermentable sugars in the fruit.

Mash your fruit with the minimum amount of water and heat to between 40 and 50 degree C

Sprinkle pectolase over mash and stir in well

Leave for 2 hours at temperature between 40 and 50 degree C..

Add water and sugar (if required) to fruit for fermentation only after pectolase treatment.

Notes:

1. The dosage should be kept at 1g pectolase mix for every 4 to 8 kg of fruit. Fruit with little pectin (little "white stuff" such as white grapes) requires 1g pectolase per 8 kg of fruit whereas fruit with lots of pectin (lots of "white stuff" like marulas and citrus) would require 1 g of pectolase per 4 kg of fruit.

2. If you cannot maintain the temerature of the mash at between 40 and 50 degree C over a 2 hour period, allow a longer treatment time (i.e. 4 hours at 25 degree C)

3. Pectolase will increase the methanol formation during fermentation, so it is important to understand the pros and cons of using pectolase enzyme.
