Packaging Your Samples 

Send 250 - 500 ml in clean, sealed container with minimal headspace. 8 oz plastic water bottles work well and will be sufficient per sample for most analyses and panels.

Glass wine bottles should be package in wine shipper or equivalent protection.  Rinse bottles with juice/wine before filling to eliminate any dilution of samples. 

For beer, 12oz or 22oz bottles or cans will also work. If sending samples for CO2 Volume please send two samples of the final packaged product.

Juice, must, wort, and yeast samples require a cold-pack.
