    Yes, it started out HIGHER than 1.000, like probably 1.090 to 1.100. Then fermentation lowers the SG from 1.090 to 0.999 or lower. It is ready to move to the next steps.

    Most neutral grape?

    Perhaps it could help us if your were to explain WHY you want a neutral grape? I, for one, don't understand this sentence: "What would I add to fruit, spice, or floral wines as background, with very little impact on flavor?"
