    Joe, have you ever timed two different yeast enoculations, say one to start primary and then another a day or two later, thinking D47 first and then V1116 a day or two later in a Sav Blanc, what do you think?

    Wondering how much muscadine wine you have made. I live in Alabama and we have plenty of muscadine grapes in our area
    and it is one of my favorite wines.

      I think some how we can ferment. But unlike grapes and fruits its not acidity and sugar content.

    Joe,
    I was thinking about adding Malo Culture to my Fontana Malbec. I racked it into the Secondary last night. Does MIF make the Malbec a better wine with smooth taste and better mouth feel? PLease let me know if this is over kill and not needed.

    did you ever figure out why you experienced slow fermentation on that batch of wine a few years back? I am having the same symptoms on my Huckleberry this year. Slow from the beginning. Still slow and slowing making alcohol. Even made a "super charger" to make sure it was not the yeast. Still slow. Ed Krause thought it was the campden tablets still giving off SO2. I don't. I waited 48 hours after the camdens. Thanks

    I use a recipe book called Winemaker's Handbook but it is limited in it's teachings with the ingredients about how and why they work.
