My temperature is 70 F, and I do not have a hydrometer.
I cannot find the recipe off hand, it was for a white wine but I could not help the temptation to add blackberries and kiwi too it. I tasted the juice and was tempted to drink it the way it was, but held off.
It is a one gallon batch with 2.5lbs of sugar added.
I think it's working, I can now smell a working bread yeasty smell in the container. The yeast granules are almost completely dissolved.
Thank You for replies.
