Description

Paper Chromatograpy test kit used to tell if your malolactic fermentation has gone to completion. This information is essential knowledge for doing SO2 additions, cold stabilization, acid additions, etc on wines that have been innoculated with an ML strain or allowed to undergo natural malolactic fermentation. You will certainly want to know if ML has completed before bottling. Comes with 25 sheets, as many as 4 samples can be tested per sheet (must be tested simultaneously, sheets cannot be re-used).

I followed the instructions. Nothing happened. What did I do wrong? Three reference standards plus three wines on the blotter sheet. The only thing I can see (after exposing overnight and drying all day) is the two red wine blots a little higher than where I originally placed them.

BEST ANSWER: Have not encountered this before, could be expired solution or container not sealing tightly

Easy
Test is simple but it doesn’t tell you if you are completely Malic dry. Currently looks like I have no Malic acid and lactic acid shows Lactic and between Malic and lactic. There is still some minimum activity in the carboy to suggest that it is still undergoing ml. I did the test twice with a week between and results are the same.
Shows lactic acid, no Malic, but wine still undergoing ml ( bubbles)

Great paper chromatography kit at a great price.
Great price for a well thought out paper chromatography kit with everything you need. Results are incredible and very useful. Save samples of juice, primary ferm, secondary ferm and finished wine and run them together to see the progress of your fermentation.
Takes patience but results are great. Lanes are: tartaric, lactic, malic, juice, ferm, ML ferm, wine

Easy and Clear Results
When I received the materials I immediately conducted a test on one kit-wine and one wine made with the help of ‘others’. The test clearly showed that the ‘other’ wine had completed MLF and that the kit-wine did not. I look forward to using these materials when I make wine from grapes later this fall...pictures to follow.

Easy to use
Was always wary of chromatography kits, but this was super easy to use and much better than paying for a lab to test numerous samples.

Very useful
As a beginning winemaker this test was recommended by several authors. Worked as described and provided an excellent indication of acids. Smells a little so follow the directions and dry outside. Will purchase again next season.

Damaged product
I ordered a chromatography test kit and the paper was rolled up and put inside the jar for shipping. When I received the product the paper was permanently curled in a ball. This makes it difficult to apply the samples to the paper When I asked for paper replacement my request was refused.

The service reps were not considerate and told me this was fine and no one else has complained. In other words I do not know what I am doing. My only option was to return the entire order. I was glad to do that.

good results
After following instructions, results were accurate and easy to interpret. It does take an overnight drying for good interpretation .
