Publication request: VERTICAL HYDRAULIC GRADIENT AND RUN-ON WATER AND SEDIMENT EFFECTS ON EROSION PROCESSES AND SEDIMENT REGIMES ARS : Research. Title: VERTICAL HYDRAULIC GRADIENT AND RUN-ON WATER AND SEDIMENT EFFECTS ON EROSION PROCESSES AND SEDIMENT REGIMES Authors. Vertical hydraulic gradient and run-on water and sediment effects on erosion processes and sediment regimes. As runoff with variable sediment concentration moves downslope, it is possible that the change in sediment concentration can affect erosion processes, i.e., detachment, deposition and transport, on a downslope segment. However, there is little experimental data to show how run-on water and sediment concentration affects erosion processes downslope. This soil box system has two soil boxes simulating an upslope sediment source area and a downslope test segment. Results showed that under free soil drainage conditions, a decrease in upslope run-on sediment content caused a corresponding increase in downslope sediment detachment. The detachmen...

Preservation of organic matter in sediments promoted by iron. Abstract The biogeochemical cycles of iron and organic carbon are strongly interlinked. In soils, solid iron phases shelter and preserve organic carbon, but the role of iron in the preservation of organic matter in sediments has not been clearly established. Here we use an iron reduction method previously applied to soils to determine the amount of organic carbon associated with reactive iron phases in sediments of various mineralogies collected from a wide range of depositional environments. Our findings suggest that 21.5 ± 8.6 per cent of the organic carbon in sediments is directly bound to reactive iron phases. We further estimate that a global mass of 19-45 × 10 15 grams of organic carbon is preserved in surface marine sediments as a result of its association with iron. Because reactive iro...

ASTM E1525 - 02 2014 Standard Guide for Designing Biological Tests with Sediments Active Standard ASTM E1525. Sediment-dwelling organisms may be exposed directly to contaminants by the ingestion of sediments and by the uptake of sediment-associated contaminants from interstitial and overlying water. Contaminated sediments may affect water column species directly by serving as a source of contaminants to overlying waters or a sink for contaminants from overlying waters. Water column species and nonaquatic species may also be affected indirectly by contaminated sediments by the transfer of contaminants through ecosystems 7 , 8. In many cases, consideration of the adverse effects of sediment-associated contaminants is only one part of a complete hazard assessment of manufactured compounds that are applied directly to the environment for example, pesticides and ...

In order to reduce the size of an SPI device it makes sense to reduce the amount of work required to displace sediment for a given imaging area. 'Figure 7.' Changing the scan head path from the typical plane found in consumer scanners to a circular path allows imaging of the same area with a much smaller perpendicular plan area which is the face that must penetrate sediments. The physical arrangement between the light guides and the imaging plane is what limits the depth of field using this technology. Tests using consumer scanners indicated that the imaging plane could be 1–3 mm away from the scan head for full resolution images, but dropped off quickly beyond that. Panel 9 shows a diver giving the ‘thumbs up’ sign to the scanner to illustrate the limited depth of field of the second prototype. Panel 9 shows a diver givin...

These sediments record the evolution of the paleoequatorial climate system throughout the Cenozoic. A very shallow CCD during most of the Paleogene makes it difficult to obtain well-preserved carbonate sediments during these stratigraphic intervals, but we recovered a unique sedimentary biogenic sediment archive for time periods just after the Paleocene/Eocene boundary event, the Eocene cooling, the Eocene–Oligocene transition, the "one cold pole" Oligocene, the Oligocene–Miocene transition, and the middle Miocene cooling.

They are rapidly adsorbed onto settling particles and removed to the underlying sediments through a process called "scavenging." Such particle-reactive isotopes can be removed directly to the underlying sediment, or they can be transported laterally with seawater to be removed in regions of higher particle flux where the rate of scavenging is higher Fig. As a result, a significant fraction of the Pa-231 produced in low productivity, low export flux regions is removed to the sediment underlying more productive regions with high export flux Fig. Sediments underlying productive regions should thus have a high Pa-231/Th-...

Abstract The influence of the oligochaete Ilyodrilus templetoni on the degradation of phenanthrene and benzo a pyrene present in a field-contaminated sediment was studied in microcosm experiments. Results indicate an enhanced degradation of phenanthrene and benzo a pyrene in microcosms inhabited by I. Total phenanthrene reduction was observed at an average of 9.78 % in worm microcosms, while no reduction was observed in the control microcosms. Benzo a pyrene reduction, on the other hand, was determined at 78.60 % and 30.04 % in worm and control microcosms, respectively. The lowest concentrations of these PAHs at the end of 97-day study were observed well below the surface of the sediment in worm microcosms. Further, the influence of the oligochaetes on the physico-chemical characteristics specifically, redox and porewater dissolved oxygen and the microbial ...

Abstract A thick, gel-like precipitate, which separated from a B20 blend, has been characterized using a variety of analytical techniques. The sediment formed in a blend of soy-based fatty acid methyl ester FAME and ultra low sulfur diesel ULSD, which had been stored under ASTM D4625 conditions without the presence of antioxidant. These vary considerably in molecular weight. The lower molecular weight species arise due to oxidative cleavage of the methyl esters. Also present are free fatty acids formed due to hydrolysis of FAME. The highest molecular weight compounds are oxidized FAME that have not undergone cleavage and oligomers of the oxidized FAME.

I noticed that my toilet tanks had black sediment So I decided to install a whole house system with a Hydronex sediment filter good to 5 microns. The filter turned black in 4 hours after installation. I have not noticed any significant pressure drop. I am going to call my well guy again, test the water again. But I wonder whats up, this water was clear 6 months ago. Besides the sediment in the toilets I also noticed sediment in the dog's water bowl the last few weeks.

thumb|right|200px|Carpathian flysch 'Flysch' is a sequence of sedimentary rock s that is deposited in a deep marine facies in the foreland basin of a developing orogen. Flysch is typically deposited during an early stage of the orogenesis. It is therefore called a syn-orogenic sediment deposited contemporaneously with mountain building. Sedimentological properties Tectonics Name and use See also References Further reading External links. Sedimentological properties. Flysch consists of repeated sedimentary cycles with upwards fining of the sediments. Flysch typically consists of a sequence of shales rhythmically interbedded with thin, hard, graywacke -like sandstones. Typically the shales do not contain many fossil s, the coarser sandstones often have fractions of mica s and glauconite. Flysch is formed under deep marine circumstances, in a quiet and low-energetic depositional environment. The coarser layers which require higher energy are disruptions in these circumstances, caused by pulsewise flows of mass t...

Longstanding theory of how species evolve in the oceans challenged. Share this on your social network: Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Mail. Most scientists believe that allopatric speciation, where different species arise from an ancestral species only after breeding populations have become physically isolated from each other, is the dominant mode of speciation both on land and in the sea. As part of the research, Sexton and Norris examined the fossils of Truncorotalia truncatulinoides a species of microscopic plankton and part of the group called 'foraminifera' buried in sediment layers beneath the seabed. By looking at different sediment layers from around the world containing these fossils, they were able to track the spread of this species from its ancestral home to its current distribution. Previous work on this species had indicated that it first appeared about 2.8 ...

USING SEDIMENTARY FEATURES TO INTERPRET SEDIMENTARY ENVIRONMENTS- A Test of Textural Maturity. One on the observations that sedimentologists use to interpret ancient depositional environments is the relative degree of sediment maturity. Sediment maturity is a measure of distance or time from the source area to the depositional site. Textural maturity is gauged largely in terms of grain size, grain sorting, and grain roundness. Grains of medium sand size tend to resist further size reduction. very well sorted. Grains Size. The inherent assumption in using sediment maturity in interpreting depositional environments is the following: “The greater the transport distance and length of time in the transport medium, the more mature a resultant sediment becomes ”. For the first part of the semester, you will test this hypothesis in lab using samples collected from two depositional environments in Alaska Fig. The sand from the second site on the Copper River delta Fig. By using samples from the same weathering environ...

Lab III - Preservation 2. Conditions Required for Plant Fossil Preservation Three conditions are required for the preservation of plant fossils:. Removing the material from oxygen-rich environment of aerobic decay; "Fixing" the organic material to retard anaerobic decay;. Introducing the fossil to the sedimentary rock record a.k.a., burial. Consequently, plant fossils are generally preserved in environments very low in oxygen e.g., anaerobic sediment because most decomposers e.g., fungi, most decomposing bacteria and invertebrates require oxygen for metabolism. Such sediments are commonly gray, green or black rather than red, a sedimentary signal of oxygen-rich conditions. The "fixing" requirements means that plant material must fall into an environment rich in humic acids or clay minerals, which can retard decay by blocking the chemical sites onto which decomposers fasten their degrading enzymes. Plant material can also be "fixed" by removing degradable organic compounds during the process of charring by wil...

But the creek flows through Aberdeen Proving Ground in Harford County, where for decades the Army produced and tested chemical weapons, and dumped its wastes indiscriminately. The creek's bottom and the marsh muck are riddled with toxic chemicals like PCBs, pesticides like DDT and metals including lead and mercury. Fish and turtles in the creek are tainted as well. Scientists and the military hope a pelletlike form of the material, which is commonly used in water filters, may one day help rid the Chesapeake and other polluted water bodies of troublesome toxic hot spots that pose a threat to fish, wildlife and people. There, Upal Ghosh, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering and SediMite's co-developer, will test to see whether contaminants in the muck have been reduced from levels before the field trial began.

Kuo, MY and Bolton, MD The nature and origin of deep ocean clay crust from the Gulf of Guinea. Geotechnique: international journal of soil mechanics. Full text not available from this repository. Deep ocean sediments off the west coast of Africa exhibit a peculiar undrained strength profile in the form of a crust, albeit of exceptionally high water content, overlying normally consolidated clay. Hot-oil pipelines are installed into these crustal sediments, so their origins and characteristics are of great interest to pipeline designers. This paper provides evidence for the presence of burrowing invertebrates in crust material, and for the way sediment properties are modified through their creation of burrows, and through the deposition of faecal pellets. However, the essential investigative technology is simply the wet-sieving of natural cores, which reveals that up to 60% by dry mass of the...

... Image:BrassfieldEncrinite042112.jpg The 'Dunham classification' system for carbonate sedimentary rocks was devised by Robert J. Dunham in 1962, and refined by Embry and Klovan in 1971 Embry, A.F. History Dunham classes Summary References. Dunham published his classification system for limestone in 1962. His scheme focuses on the depositional fabric of carbonate rocks. Unlike the Folk classification scheme, Dunham deals with the original porosity of the rock. The Dunham scheme is more useful for hand samples because it is based on texture and not the grains in the sample. The classification is a way of describing the composition of calcareous rocks in hand sample. For descriptions detailing the textural components of sediments and sedimentary rocks, as in thin section, the Folk classification is generally preferred - both are equally valid methods of classification with different emphases. Mudstone contains less than 10% grains usually assessed by area in cut or thin section, supported by a lime mud. Wack...

*  Artificial seawater
... 'Artificial seawater' abbreviated 'ASW' is a mixture of dissolved mineral salts and sometimes vitamin s that simulates seawater. Artificial seawater is primarily used in marine biology and in marine and reef aquaria, and allows the easy preparation of media appropriate for marine organism s including algae, bacteria, plant s and animal s. From a scientific perspective, artificial seawater has the advantage of reproducibility over natural seawater. Example Standard See also References External links. Example. The tables below present an example of an artificial seawater preparation devised by Kester, Duedall, Connors and Pytkowicz 1967. 'Limnology & Oceanography' '12', 176—179.

That not only makes seawater more acidic, it makes carbonate less readily available for corals, shellfish, and some plankton to build their calcium-carbonate shells or skeletons. For seven days, White grew a subset of larvae in only ambient seawater; a subset spent their first 12 hours in ambient seawater and then were subjected to more acidic seawater with a pH of 7.4; another subset of larvae grew only in acidified water; and a final subset spent their first 12 hours in acidified seawater and then were switched to ambient water. Developmental delays and deformities White measured the survival rate and shell size in larvae to test whether larvae spending their first days of life in normal seawater fared differently than larvae spending their first days in seawater acidified with high carbon dioxide.

(1/2414) Desulfocella halophila gen. nov., sp. nov., a halophilic, fatty-acid-oxidizing, sulfate-reducing bacterium isolated from sediments of the Great Salt Lake.

A new halophilic sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain GSL-But2T, was isolated from surface sediment of the Southern arm of the Great Salt Lake, UT, USA. The organism grew with a number of straight-chain fatty acids (C4-C16), 2-methylbutyrate, L-alanine and pyruvate as electron donors. Butyrate was oxidized incompletely to acetate. Sulfate, but not sulfite or thiosulfate, served as an electron acceptor. Growth was observed between 2 and 19% (w/v) NaCl with an optimum at 4-5% (w/v) NaCl. The optimal temperature and pH for growth were around 34 degrees C and pH 6.5-7.3, respectively. The generation time under optimal conditions in defined medium was around 28 h, compared to 20 h in complex medium containing yeast extract. The G+C content was 35.0 mol%. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain GSL-But2T belongs to the family Desulfobacteriaceae within the delta-subclass of the Proteobacteria and suggested that strain GSL-But2T represents a member of a new genus. The name Desulfocella halophila gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed for this organism. The type strain of D. halophila is strain GSL-But2T (= DSM 11763T = ATCC 700426T).  (+info)

Strain TBP-1, an anaerobic bacterium capable of reductively dehalogenating 2,4,6-tribromophenol to phenol, was isolated from estuarine sediments of the Arthur Kill in the New York/New Jersey harbor. It is a gram-negative, motile, vibrio-shaped, obligate anaerobe which grows on lactate, pyruvate, hydrogen, and fumarate when provided sulfate as an electron acceptor. The organism accumulates acetate when grown on lactate and sulfate, contains desulfoviridin, and will not grow in the absence of NaCl. It will not utilize acetate, succinate, propionate, or butyrate for growth via sulfate reduction. When supplied with lactate as an electron donor, strain TBP-1 will utilize sulfate, sulfite, sulfur, and thiosulfate for growth but not nitrate, fumarate, or acrylate. This organism debrominates 2-, 4-, 2,4-, 2,6-, and 2,4,6-bromophenol but not 3- or 2,3-bromophenol or monobrominated benzoates. It will not dehalogenate monochlorinated, fluorinated, or iodinated phenols or chlorinated benzoates. Together with its physiological characteristics, its 16S rRNA gene sequence places it in the genus Desulfovibrio. The average growth yield of strain TBP-1 grown on a defined medium supplemented with lactate and 2,4,6-bromophenol is 3.71 mg of protein/mmol of phenol produced, and the yield was 1.42 mg of protein/mmol of phenol produced when 4-bromophenol was the electron acceptor. Average growth yields (milligrams of protein per millimole of electrons utilized) for Desulfovibrio sp. strain TBP-1 grown with 2,4,6-bromophenol, 4-bromophenol, or sulfate are 0.62, 0.71, and 1.07, respectively. Growth did not occur when either lactate or 2,4,6-bromophenol was omitted from the growth medium. These results indicate that Desulfovibrio sp. strain TBP-1 is capable of growth via halorespiration.  (+info)

(3/2414) Diversity of nitrous oxide reductase (nosZ) genes in continental shelf sediments.

Diversity of the nitrous oxide reductase (nosZ) gene was examined in sediments obtained from the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean continental shelves. Approximately 1,100 bp of the nosZ gene were amplified via PCR, using nosZ gene-specific primers. Thirty-seven unique copies of the nosZ gene from these marine environments were characterized, increasing the nosZ sequence database fourfold. The average DNA similarity for comparisons between all 49 variants of the nosZ gene was 64% +/- 10%. Alignment of the derived amino acid sequences confirmed the conservation of important structural motifs. A highly conserved region is proposed as the copper binding, catalytic site (CuZ) of the mature protein. Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated three major clusters of nosZ genes, with little overlap between environmental and culture-based groups. Finally, the two non-culture-based gene clusters generally corresponded to sampling location, implying that denitrifier communities may be restricted geographically.  (+info)

(4/2414) Dense populations of a giant sulfur bacterium in Namibian shelf sediments.

A previously unknown giant sulfur bacterium is abundant in sediments underlying the oxygen minimum zone of the Benguela Current upwelling system. The bacterium has a spherical cell that exceeds by up to 100-fold the biovolume of the largest known prokaryotes. On the basis of 16S ribosomal DNA sequence data, these bacteria are closely related to the marine filamentous sulfur bacteria Thioploca, abundant in the upwelling area off Chile and Peru. Similar to Thioploca, the giant bacteria oxidize sulfide with nitrate that is accumulated to +info)

(5/2414) Environment and behavior of 2.5-million-year-old Bouri hominids.

The Hata Member of the Bouri Formation is defined for Pliocene sedimentary outcrops in the Middle Awash Valley, Ethiopia. The Hata Member is dated to 2.5 million years ago and has produced a new species of Australopithecus and hominid postcranial remains not currently assigned to species. Spatially associated zooarchaeological remains show that hominids acquired meat and marrow by 2.5 million years ago and that they are the near contemporary of Oldowan artifacts at nearby Gona. The combined evidence suggests that behavioral changes associated with lithic technology and enhanced carnivory may have been coincident with the emergence of the Homo clade from Australopithecus afarensis in eastern Africa.  (+info)

(6/2414) Rhodococcus erythropolis DCL14 contains a novel degradation pathway for limonene.

Strain DCL14, which is able to grow on limonene as a sole source of carbon and energy, was isolated from a freshwater sediment sample. This organism was identified as a strain of Rhodococcus erythropolis by chemotaxonomic and genetic studies. R. erythropolis DCL14 also assimilated the terpenes limonene-1,2-epoxide, limonene-1,2-diol, carveol, carvone, and (-)-menthol, while perillyl alcohol was not utilized as a carbon and energy source. Induction tests with cells grown on limonene revealed that the oxygen consumption rates with limonene-1,2-epoxide, limonene-1,2-diol, 1-hydroxy-2-oxolimonene, and carveol were high. Limonene-induced cells of R. erythropolis DCL14 contained the following four novel enzymatic activities involved in the limonene degradation pathway of this microorganism: a flavin adenine dinucleotide- and NADH-dependent limonene 1, 2-monooxygenase activity, a cofactor-independent limonene-1, 2-epoxide hydrolase activity, a dichlorophenolindophenol-dependent limonene-1,2-diol dehydrogenase activity, and an NADPH-dependent 1-hydroxy-2-oxolimonene 1,2-monooxygenase activity. Product accumulation studies showed that (1S,2S,4R)-limonene-1,2-diol, (1S, 4R)-1-hydroxy-2-oxolimonene, and (3R)-3-isopropenyl-6-oxoheptanoate were intermediates in the (4R)-limonene degradation pathway. The opposite enantiomers [(1R,2R,4S)-limonene-1,2-diol, (1R, 4S)-1-hydroxy-2-oxolimonene, and (3S)-3-isopropenyl-6-oxoheptanoate] were found in the (4S)-limonene degradation pathway, while accumulation of (1R,2S,4S)-limonene-1,2-diol from (4S)-limonene was also observed. These results show that R. erythropolis DCL14 metabolizes both enantiomers of limonene via a novel degradation pathway that starts with epoxidation at the 1,2 double bond forming limonene-1,2-epoxide. This epoxide is subsequently converted to limonene-1,2-diol, 1-hydroxy-2-oxolimonene, and 7-hydroxy-4-isopropenyl-7-methyl-2-oxo-oxepanone. This lactone spontaneously rearranges to form 3-isopropenyl-6-oxoheptanoate. In the presence of coenzyme A and ATP this acid is converted further, and this finding, together with the high levels of isocitrate lyase activity in extracts of limonene-grown cells, suggests that further degradation takes place via the beta-oxidation pathway.  (+info)

(7/2414) Role of methanogens and other bacteria in degradation of dimethyl sulfide and methanethiol in anoxic freshwater sediments.

The roles of several trophic groups of organisms (methanogens and sulfate- and nitrate-reducing bacteria) in the microbial degradation of methanethiol (MT) and dimethyl sulfide (DMS) were studied in freshwater sediments. The incubation of DMS- and MT-amended slurries revealed that methanogens are the dominant DMS and MT utilizers in sulfate-poor freshwater systems. In sediment slurries, which were depleted of sulfate, 75 micromol of DMS was stoichiometrically converted into 112 micromol of methane. The addition of methanol or MT to DMS-degrading slurries at concentrations similar to that of DMS reduced DMS degradation rates. This indicates that the methanogens in freshwater sediments, which degrade DMS, are also consumers of methanol and MT. To verify whether a competition between sulfate-reducing and methanogenic bacteria for DMS or MT takes place in sulfate-rich freshwater systems, the effects of sulfate and inhibitors, like bromoethanesulfonic acid, molybdate, and tungstate, on the degradation of MT and DMS were studied. The results for these sulfate-rich and sulfate-amended slurry incubations clearly demonstrated that besides methanogens, sulfate-reducing bacteria take part in MT and DMS degradation in freshwater sediments, provided that sulfate is available. The possible involvement of an interspecies hydrogen transfer in these processes is discussed. In general, our study provides evidence for methanogenesis as a major sink for MT and DMS in freshwater sediments.  (+info)

(8/2414) Molecular analysis of microbial community structures in pristine and contaminated aquifers: field and laboratory microcosm experiments.

This study used phylogenetic probes in hybridization analysis to (i) determine in situ microbial community structures in regions of a shallow sand aquifer that were oxygen depleted and fuel contaminated (FC) or aerobic and noncontaminated (NC) and (ii) examine alterations in microbial community structures resulting from exposure to toluene and/or electron acceptor supplementation (nitrate). The latter objective was addressed by using the NC and FC aquifer materials for anaerobic microcosm studies in which phylogenetic probe analysis was complemented by microbial activity assays. Domain probe analysis of the aquifer samples showed that the communities were predominantly Bacteria; Eucarya and Archaea were not detectable. At the phylum and subclass levels, the FC and NC aquifer material had similar relative abundance distributions of 43 to 65% beta- and gamma-Proteobacteria (B+G), 31 to 35% alpha-Proteobacteria (ALF), 15 to 18% sulfate-reducing bacteria, and 5 to 10% high G+C gram positive bacteria. Compared to that of the NC region, the community structure of the FC material differed mainly in an increased abundance of B+G relative to that of ALF. The microcosm communities were like those of the field samples in that they were predominantly Bacteria (83 to 101%) and lacked detectable Archaea but differed in that a small fraction (2 to 8%) of Eucarya was detected regardless of the treatment applied. The latter result was hypothesized to reflect enrichment of anaerobic protozoa. Addition of nitrate and/or toluene stimulated microbial activity in the microcosms, but only supplementation of toluene alone significantly altered community structures. For the NC material, the dominant subclass shifted from B+G to ALF, while in the FC microcosms 55 to 65% of the Bacteria community was no longer identifiable by the phylum or subclass probes used. The latter result suggested that toluene exposure fostered the proliferation of phylotype(s) that were otherwise minor constituents of the FC aquifer community. These studies demonstrated that alterations in aquifer microbial communities resulting from specific anthropogenic perturbances can be inferred from microcosm studies integrating chemical and phylogenetic probe analysis and in the case of hydrocarbon contamination may facilitate the identification of organisms important for in situ biodegradation processes. Further work integrating and coordinating microcosm and field experiments is needed to explore how differences in scale, substrate complexity, and other hydrogeological conditions may affect patterns observed in these systems.  (+info)


What are the black sediments in the rice cereal?


I bought some Earth's best rice cereal for my baby. After I mixed it with milk or water, I found some black sediments in it. It does not happen everytime. These black particles feel fine in texture. (Not like sands) I opened another box and the same thing happened.

I plan to send it back to the manufacturer for a test. BuI I'm abroad now and can't do this in 2 months. 
Does anyone have ever meet the same problem?
----------

I think it's fine... Rice is a grain, more than likely it's a part of the rice that wasn't processed since it's a more natural brand.
Just a guess


Why is there a yellow sediment in my Mountain Dew?


I find a yellow sediment at the bottom of some Mountain Dew, Diet Mountain Dew, Vault and Vault Zero bottles in stores. How does it get there?
----------

often i see that too, its the preservative used to maintain its freshness since its a fruit based product, you will see sodium benzoate in drinks, its the chemical used to preserve the foods even in canned foods, the problem is that in mt. dew it settles down because of the coldness of the drinks, you will see that there is no yellowish sediment under the bottle of mt.dew when they are not refrigerated, because the preservative maintain its solubility with the liquid, in order for sodium benzoate to retain its liquid form it needs high temperature, that the reason it returns to solid yellowish sediment when on cold temperature. Hope it brighten you up! Don't worry that sodium benzoate is tolerable and will not cause your death, its approved by health department if in the right amount and concentration! By the way mt.dew is my favorite drinks. Enjoy drinking!


Is it acceptable to rack wine off its lees before fermentation is complete? There is ~ 3" of sediment?


I have 5 gal of stawberry wine with a sg of 1.025 the air lock is still bubbling nicely however there is almost 3 inches sediment and lees that have dropped out of the wine since it was transfered into the secondary 3 weeks ago. What is the chance the I will get off flavors from leaving the wine on the sediment or get a stuck fermentation from racking it?
----------

Rack it about once a month until you see no more sediment and your wine is completely clear. I don't think you will get any noticeable off flavoring. i have never had a stuck fermentation from racking, it can actually be good to introduce a little oxygen since the yeast need it to live, not too much though, avoid excess splashing.


please tell me what cause the sediment in wine?


I have some Australian Penfolds wines, all the bottles have the sediment inside. They tell me it's normal for red wines, but I wanna know what caused it, normally, and what does the sediment mean, while other wines were seldom seen having this. Thanks.
----------

Many of the previous answers are confusing sediment in the wine making process, e.g. lees etc with sediment that develops in the bottle with aging.

Good red wines  will drop sediment over time. That is a by product of the aging process.  

The sediment is a mix of tartaric crystals, tannins and other products of the complex various chemical changes that have taken place. In red wines they are stained black, and may stick to  the side of the glass bottle if it has been left undisturbed, or be loose granules if the bottle has been moved. (in a white wine tartaric crystals look like tiny diamonds or shards of glass)

They are not only harmless but they are a welcome sight since they confirm that it is a good quality wine that has aged.

Before opening, stand the bottle upright for 24 hours to let them settle to the bottom of the bottle. Then open and pour the wine very carefully so as not to distrub the sediment. Or you can try pouring in one smooth motion into another container, leaving the wine with the sediment behind -- this is known as 'decanting'.


Mass market cheap wines have been treated with various techniques, such as filtering and cold stabilization to ensure there won't be any sediment, since such wines are bought by people who see such sediment as a fault and return the bottles to the shop. 

Wineries expect that people who pay for an expensive wine with understand about sediment and see it as a good thing. 

Penfolds are an excellent Australian producer and their wines should be excellent. Pour with care and you should be in for a real treat. 

Enjoy


What is this sediment in my gin and is it safe?


About to drink some gin that may be over ten years old. There is a sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Is it still safe? I mean, it's not like alien spores or antifreeze, is it?

tonic water, you might get diahorrea


Is it bad if there is sediment in a bottle of wine?


We bought a bottle of cabernet sauvignon 2005 today, from the wine shop. When we opened it we realised it had some sediment on it... The wine tastes good, but I am totally uneducated about wine and I am wondering whether that means the wine is going off or something.
----------

The sediment in a  bottle of wine is safe and nothing to worry about. It can be yeast, wine acid crystals, or cork material. If stored poorly the wine might cloud but still taste good. Again, its nothing to worry about but bring it to the attention of your local store management.


Is the white sediment at bottom of my keg a sign of fermentation?


I've used the nut brown alecherry recipie ( Mr. Beer ) and added 1 can of cherries and 1 cup of honey. I noticed no bubbling at all on surface or anywhere but there is a fine thick white sediment ( thick ) at bottom of keg. Is this a good sign?
----------

Thats from dead yeast cells, so it means they grew at least enough to die and form on the bottom, but are probably still alive and kicking.  Best way to gauge fermentation is the formation of CO2 gas.  


Is that a problem to drink wine with some sediments in the bottom.?


I bought a bottle of wine, I found that there is some sediments in the bottom of the bottle. Is the wine turned bad??
The label shows 1997.

Sediments in reds are natural. Just decant it
