Mobile Velcorin Dosing
We offer a mobile Velcorin dosing service. We have 4 dosing units and are the most experienced Velcorin service provider in the western United States. The mobile dosing service can be utilized either at the time of bottling, whether or not you are using THE BOTTLE MEISTER's mobile bottling service, or for tank to tank transfers. Velcorin (dimethyl dicarbonate) is an FDA regulated microbial control agent which is highly effective, even in low dosages, against a variety of yeasts ( Brettanomyces, Saccharomyces and Zygosaccharomyces), moderately effective against some bacteria (Acetobacter, Pseudomomas and Lactobacillus) and effective against mold found in wine. It works synergistically with SO2 and rapidly breaks down into small amounts of carbon dioxide and methanol, affecting neither the taste, color, nor aroma of the wine. Velcorin has no labeling requirements. According to the United States International Trade Commission, it is currently used by about 10% of the U.S. wine industry to avoid excessive filtration in the manufacturing process. It is commonly used in fruit juice drinks, ready to drink teas and sports drinks. Velcorin is produced by Lanxess Corporation (formerly Bayer A.G.) and is distributed exclusively by Scott Laboratories.
