Potassium Sorbate

Stops fermentation and prevents re-fermentation in bottle.

Product Specs

Potassium Sorbate arrests fermentation and is used as an additive before bottling to prevent re-fermentation in the bottle.  It does not kill yeast and therefore is not a fungicide, but prevents fermentation by interfering with the metabolism of the yeast.

  • Its properties are dependent on the combined presence of sulfur dioxide, alcohol, and acidity.
  • Other names:  Potassium-2,4-hexadienoate.

Application: Added during ingredient blending of Flavored Malt Beverages or prior to packaging ciders and fruit based beverages.

Packaging:  50 lb. box
