    MLF and Juice Buckets

    My MLF has been going since May 19th with VP41, but so far I've forgotten to stir the wine. I've been told that VP41 is the workhorse of MLF. Do you guys stir yours when using VP41?

    In Italy it's called Grappa, in Portugal Aguardente. It's distilled from the pommace. Pretty strong, but tastes and smells beautifully. Everything is used during winemaking. LOL
