    Mosti Mondiale How long can you leave in Primary?

    No, of course the lids were not on tight (how stupid am I?) so that is probably what I am smelling. Only time will tell I guess. One of the kits was the Mosti Limited Edition Sangiovese!! The other was the Spagnols Pinot Noir. I am so bummed, but will never make that mistake again!

    Mosti Mondiale How long can you leave in Primary?

    Honestly, I got lazy. I have two kits brewing and left both in the primary for 30 days. Smells funny, although it is in morning and I am drinking coffee. I just racked to secondary and added the oak. Did I just ruin both kits? SG is right around .995/.998. I did not add the yeast nutrient...

    RJ Spagnols Winery Series Rosso Grande Excellente

    I followed the directions to a "T". It probably could use more oak, but I did not venture off. I am thinking of doing another one!!

    Hmm....New Sub-forum idea

    Perhaps to even discuss certain wine kits, although opinions are just that, opinions. However, I did make a post comparing Amarones (WE vs Mosti).

    WineXpert Adding Oak

    Thanks for the replies. I have discover that most of the kits I have made so far are too light, almost have a sweeter taste that I prefer, so I thought by adding some oak, I can achieve more of a tannic wine than a sweeter wine (don't get me wrong, I am not making sweet wines-Barbaresco...
