    Peach Mead

    The recipe calls for 15 lbs peaches and 4 lb clover honey as well as sugar. I thought about adding peach flavoring just prior to bottling. Do you think I should increase the peach content. Also what are thoughts on peeling peaches?

    Mosti Mondiale Bulk Aginig

    thanks for the advice. My wife and i do like our wines on the sweeter side, this cab fermented out way to dry for our taste. I racked off the sediment several weeks ago and added the kmeta that was in the kit. It has been sitting nicely. So I should just let it stay in the carboy for a year then...

    Mosti Mondiale Bulk Aginig

    I have a MM All Juice Cab Sauvignon. It was started on January 1. I was going to bottle in March but a friend suggested that I bulk age it for 1 year. That's fine, but a couple of questions - how often would I need to rack it? 2- would I need to add K-Meta on a regular basis? What is the...

    Mosti Mondiale Topping Up Mosti Mondiale All Juice

    okay I racked my MM Alljuice CAb last night but when I finished I had about 4 inches at the top of the carboy (I think since this was my first time racking off the sediment I may have lost some wine) and then the extra bottle that I had pulled off at the first racking had a weird smell so I...
