I am trying my hand at winemaking using a recipe from jack kellers for muscadines. I have had a few things go not as planned. I think I am ok, but would rather hear it from those that know.
First I used a full gallon of water instead of the 3 quarts that were called for. I added extra sugar to hopefully compensate for H2O. After checking S.G. on day two, it was at 1.090.
Second and more importantly. Tonight I came home and decided to check S.G. again. By the way this is Day 4. S.G. was at 1.016. I was suppose to rack to a secondary at 1.030. I hurridly got everything ready and racked. With the air locks on, everything is looking OK. Did I catch it in time?
