Economy Aeration-Oxidation Free SO2 Test Kit
In winemaking, Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) is one of the most important and effective tools in the winemaker's arsenal for protecting against the effects of oxidative or microbial spoilage.
Until now, winemakers had to make a choice between inexpensive test kits which lacked accuracy, and testers which are highly accurate but cost hundreds of dollars. We now carry an inexpensive AND accurate test kit which we feel has a place in every home winery.
Aeration-Oxidation is the exact same testing method used in thousands of commercial wineries and wine analysis laboratories around the world. It is time-tested and proven accurate and is simple to perform. The kit includes:
- All the glassware and tubing needed to set up a 2-chamber test apparatus
- Pipettes to accurately measure your wine sample and chemicals
- An aspiration pump to drive the chemical reaction in the test method
- Enough chemical reagents to run 2-3 tests
- Clear and comprehensive instructions for setting up and running the system
PLEASE NOTE: This kit ships with a small bottle of 25% phosphoric acid which is required for the test. At this strength phosphoric acid is considered a hazardous material and we are not certified to ship larger quantities. We recommend that you investigate the possibility of sourcing it locally, through a laboratory supply company.
