    WE Island Mist Tweaks

    Peach Apricot Chardonnay. So, by mistake I put the f-pack in at the beginning. I planned to add grape concentrate, but grabbed the F-pack instead. Should I let it go to dry and back sweeten or stop fermentation with the sorbate before dry? Starting SG was 1.09(I added sugar also). Any...

    Finally built my wine rack

    We recently moved so it presented an opportunity to make a new cellar. I built ladder racks using the design from “The Homebuilt Winery” book and the diamond racks from @sourgrapes. Thank you for the drawings and notes!

    Malolactic Fermentation Help

    Thanks for the comments Sorry I didn’t reply earlier. A little busy here lately. I’m thinking it was SO2 issues. I used Kmeta to sanitize. Maybe to much residual left. Also I know the Cabernet I accidentally added some when I racked. Both were buckets of juice. PH was 3.6 using a test strip...

    Malolactic Fermentation Help

    Follow up to my previous. Here are my Feb and March Chromotography charts. It looks like I still have Malo. Forgive me my first time testing. Is this what I should expect? The Cab is the one I accidentally added some Kmeta, but the Syrah should be good. The Syrah is in my temp controlled...
