Got up early this morning as we had severe weather warnings and huge thunderstorms rolling through here, and decided to run a chromo to see where things stood. Couple folks were following this co-inoculation ( @ceeaton
)my second time doing it.
Pitched yeast (BM 4x4)on the previously frozen must on 1/8/17, it was still pretty cool and I did not sulfite it at all. First cap was on 1/11/17, which is when I pitched VP41 along with acti / optic products. Pressed and went to glass on 1/15 and 1/16, racked off of gross lees on 1/18 and 1/19. This test is 11 days after pitching MLB , and AF is crawling to a halt.
You can see the T M L standards to the left, followed by Fall Merlot 1 & 2 (they were a tad slow), Tempranillo 1 & 2, Temp / Merlot blend, and Merlot 1, 2 & 3. Pretty impressive.
