Adding “polish” to a wine’s appearance is the number one reason home winemakers elect to filter their wines. It adds a glassy and pure look to the wine that is simply appealing. Filtration will not make a cloudy wine become clear. That is not its purpose.
Our filter rentals are to be used only for Winexpert kits. Some wine kits on the market contain dyes and glycerin which will often clog the filter and you will be unsuccessful in completing the process. Glycerin is added by some companies as a thickening agent to artificially make the wine taste heavier. Dyes are added to make weak wine appear darker.
