How to Add Fining Material to Wine

Fining material is used to remove yeast, bacteria and other substances suspended in wine. If you buy a wine-making kit from a wine-making supply shop, it should include fining materials and directions. Follow the instructions below when using gelatin as a fining material.

Before adding fining material, add 1 1/4 tsp. tannin for every 5 gallons of wine. Stir and let sit for 24 hours.

Add 1 tsp. gelatin fining material to 1/2 c. cold water and let soak for 1 hour.

Stir vigorously.

Bring to a boil, either on the stove or in a microwave, then remove from heat.

Stir into wine and let stand for 10 to 15 days.

Rack the wine to remove the sediment at the bottom. (See "How to Rack Wine" in the Related eHows.)
