Tjungu and Carrusel LR kits from RJS are in at FVW. Just got notice they'll begin shipping tomorrow.

Too bad. A day earlier and I might have had mine in time to start it this weekend while we wait out the blizzard.

I too ordered the Carrusel I need to look up yeast to substitute it with. In the original thread both you and Mike mentioned your go to for whites.
I haven't kicked off my Forza yet hopefully early next month. Maybe get this in before that.

Got the same today, Tjungu on the way.

Funny, you're dreading the snow, and I'm taking off of work Friday to go north to my property to hunt ducks in the snow, at least according to the forecast.

Oh, I'm not dreading the snow. I can't wait! I'm just upset my wine kit won't be here.

Mine shipped out yesterday from FVW. I snagged one of the Carrusel's as well. This kit was quite a bit higher than the Passport White LR. Hope it is worth it.

Are you swapping out the yeast? I'm going with D-47.

Yea, going with BA11. Love the flavor profile of that yeast for whites. No extra nutrients required, ferments at low temps and ferments without any issues to dry every single time.

Do you ferment cool? I guess you don't have to do anything for that in your winery this time of year.

Yea, I use 75F water (in the juice concentrate) when pitching the yeast then no heat after that and it usually ferments out around ~65 degrees in about 10-14 days.
