    Big mistake

    I’ve made a bunch of wine, sometimes I bottle too soon and get sediment. I’ve got a honey crisp apple wine that was crystal clear in the carboy. Big batch (8 cases), pulled out a bottle the other day and it’s nasty looking (well to me) its got 3/4 inch of pectin (I assume)sitting on the bottom...

    Top off question

    Ok, we’ve always been told to top off with a “similar” wine. What would be wrong with making a batch of wine using sugar, water and yeast. Finishing it off and using it to top off any wine you want? I mean it would add no flavor and would not change the abv.

    Superkleer question.

    I’ve got a carboy of joam that I added stage one in, after a couple hours it looks like this My question is should I skip stage 2? Usually if I add the second stage when it looks like this then it gets cloudy and takes forever to clear. Are there any repercussions by not using stage 2?

    Nakedwines.com

    i received a $100.00 wine voucher. Got to spend 160 or more to use it. Anyone interested in the discount code? Don’t want anything for it. Just hate to see it go to waste if someone here wants to use it.

    Norovirus question

    I saw where great value triple berry (frozen) has been recalled due to norovirus. My question is is my latest batch of banana berry wine safe? It was started 3 weeks or longer ago. I no longer have the packages. I’m not sure the berries used were of the same batch they are recalling.

    Smelly barrel

    i purchased a 55 gallon food grade barrel to use as a fermentation bucket. The problem is it had sliced jalapeños in it. What can I do to get rid of the smell? Or am I stuck with a smelly bucket I can’t use.

    Fruit flies

    made a peppermint wine, 3 gallons, and just checked on it and the airlock is full of fruit flies. Plus there’s a dozen or so in the carboy. I’ve already pbw’d the crap out of everything that was out in the open. My question is how do I tell if my wine is screwed?
