    Newbee question about sugar

    Coach, As Greg stated, the simple syrup is the way to go. Make it by disolving the sugar you want into a small amount of water on the stove. Low heat is enough but stir frequently to avoid burning. There are good guides out there that can tell you how much to add per gallon to raise your...

    Welchs concentrate in a soda can

    Deal for sure if you don't want a real high end finished product. It will ferment and it will get you drunk. Is Troy here anymore? He had some experience with that.

    Fermentation Has Not Started

    Greg, While a starter would help don't be so sure that fermentation isn't underway. 24 hours is too soon to tell. More info will help us help you. Do you have your gravity readings from when you started?

    Still Here

    I'm guessing he's just waiting for me to say, "Welcome back Troy". I've been missing lately too. Wow, wouldn't it be funny if Troy and I were the same?? Is that possible .............. Nahhhhhhhh

    How many gallons do you make a year?

    Currently 36 gallons in carboys..... I'm slipping I guess. You don't need to be a big drinker. Just a big thinker.

    Wine Kitz - Zinfandel too little volume

    Dan, Val's explanation is where my mind was headed as I read this thread. Though as Dugger says the instructions while very generic in most of the kits I buy should be more specific when it comes to a kit with such a big bag of solids. Your SG probably grew to well above the intended...

    Airlock or cloth?

    You can do either, I prefer to place the lid on the first 24 hours or so but loosely...just resting on top and then I button it down. Others just use the cloth. If you have no fruit flies or danger of pests getting in...or cats....then you can go that route too. Welcome aboard.

    Warning: Check your primary buckets

    Dan, Did not mean to challenge you....perhaps it's just my manner. I don't return things very often to stores, and never send anything back to the kitchen. :d

    Warning: Check your primary buckets

    Dan, How many primaries did you put through that bucket? I have the same but figure it's due to steady use. I would never consider returning a zip lock baggie after successfully bagging my left overs. Wine making takes wear and tear on things. Just like everything. Everything has a...
