adding additives and diluting with water
hey everyone, so im doing my first red wine kit. its a vivo italiano Barolo red wine. its just a cheap-o wine kit, since its my first. Its currently sitting at. .997 and should be done fermenting by this weekend. However its been staying at. 997 for a week or two. Any tips here? should i wait to see if it drops lower towards. 990.
anyways back to the topic...
Im approaching the clearing stage and instructions call for adding additives soon and im wondering about how to add them properly. My kit instructions simply say to dump the additives in and stir, but iv noticed the instructions are pretty simple and leave alot to the imagination. i dont know if your familiar with craig from craig tube, but he has a good make your own wine kit video on youtube. he stated and showed to dilute the additive with water, although i think it was just for his pot sorbate. now im wondeing if i should dilute my additives that came with my kit. Ill have to look later at the exact names of the additives but i believe the kit came with, kielosol, chitosan and a wine conditioner.
WINE; not to light like beer, not too heavy like liquor, the perfect medium!
