    Wine that I started before I got into this group

    Racking

    Ok this might be a stupid question but why Rack wine 2 and 3 times? That's just removing the sediment at the bottom essentially and allowing the wine to clear.. wouldnt the sediment stay at the bottom either way? Thanks

    Possible Campden mistake

    Help, my strawberry fermentation stopped

    Complete in 3 days? I did just notice the recipient called for 1 of everything and I was supposed to add more per gallon,which I didnt.. the recipient was for 1 gallon.. I was supposed to do 4 times more of the things on the recipie..think I should do that now after 3 days?

    Help, my strawberry fermentation stopped

    I made 5 gallons .. used about 19 to 20 lbs of strawberries. Used 1 packet of yeast.. even without the yeast shouldn't the fruit be able to ferment on it's own? I made a batch of blue berry and didnt even use yeast.. not sure if I should put another packet in or not.. thank you for the reply
