Introducing: Oenotools Winemaking Calculator

November 25, 2011  posted by Patrice Pellerin

OENOTOOLS is the latest smartphone and tablet application to help winemakers make essential calculations during wine production.

This free application developed by OENOBRANDS contains the most widely used calculation and conversion tools required in the winery. The development of this application is in line with Oenobrands’ strategy of offering winemakers innovative, advanced winemaking solutions.

The first version of OENOTOOLS allows the winemaker to:

-Calculate the quantity of any powder, liquid or gas additive to add to a tank. For instance, OENOTOOLS will determine the amount of gum arabic, enzymes, tannins or any fining agent to add to a tank from a powder or liquid source.

-Determine the amount of sulfite to add according to the winemaker’s selected source (various concentrations or gas) to reach a set total, free and/or active SO2target.

-Convert the common measuring units used for grape juice and wine: for example, liters into gallons, brix into sugar concentration, etc.

-Establish the conditions and flow rate for deoxygenation and decarbonization using nitrogen stripping.

The OENOTOOLS app provides a range of quick and accurate winemaking calculation tools in four languages: English, Spanish, French and Italian.
