A carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) Panel is a highly effective method to develop a cold stable product. It is designed to determine the proper addition of CMC to inhibit tartrate crystallization. Initial cold stability testing is performed followed by suitable addition rates to identify the lowest addition rate that is considered acceptable.
Minimum Volume Required: 750mL
CMC Panel, including heat stability of treated samples
(Units: uS, NTU; Technique: Conductivity, Incubation + Turbidimeter)
Note : Lodi Wine Labs uses Celstab for standard cold stability trials.
If you are using a different product for cold stabilization, please send 50mL with your sample for lab use.
If you would like a specific range of dosage rates, please note this on the sample label.
