    Back Sweetening with fresh pressed grape juice

    My muscadine wine had been sitting for months. I pulled out some muscadines from the freezer, mashed/squeezed juice and made I guess what would be a fruit pack. I added to the wine with some pectic enzyme to help clear. 3 weeks later, it's clear and very tasty. The extra juice brought the...

    Back Sweetening with fresh pressed grape juice

    Back Sweetening with fresh pressed grape juice

    I was thinking about pressing the juice from the muscadines and then making a syrup out of it on the stove. Would that pasteurize the juice? Of course, I would be adding some sorbate to the wine.

    Fig wine problems

    Yep. Let is sit. I'm wondering how the figs were added in primary. I have a small 1 gallon batch aging, but I used a fine mesh bag for my figs in primary. I then pulled them out after primary. This photo is after 4 weeks.

    I joined the forum a while back to watch and learn. I've pretty much have been lurking. I've been making 1 gallon batches of different wines (and a couple of meads) to discover what my wife and I like. I recently tried out a recipe for Lemon/Lime/Basil wine (my wife loves all of those...

    New from Alabama

    Hello Everyone! I "think" I'm getting ready to make my first small batch of wine. My wife and I have both recently retired, and so I find myself exploring new things to do. We have a few muscadine vines and were making jelly the other day, so I thought I should try some wine. I've been...
