    Just to be clear - I'm talking about sugar for back-sweetening. I think it called for up to ~6c
    in the original recipe. Other people may use less/more depending on their taste.The sugar used
    in the fe...

    Somewhere between 5 and six gallons yes... I don't particularly like sweet wines though and you
    can always add more sugar... But let it sit for a while to meld before bottling because it does
    bloom a ...

    When I did my tests on the back sweetening amounts I had already let it sit for a couple months

    @StevelazYes Vodka or Gin - I find it needs to be about 50/50 to get good solid flavor with a

    High concentrations of tobacco extract can be very poisonous - deadly.... That being said, I

    Thanks John! It has been cold down there lately. 45-50*F and the cap is very spongy. I did stir
    it up and the cap reforms quickly.I recently added DAP Fermaid K and Goferm protect in the
    ec1118 starte...
