    Question

    Yes I used EC 1118 yeast. This was my "experiment" to bump up the alcohol with added concentrate wine juice. I first went by chart of Jack Keller...but ended up being a little chicken so I put 9 pounds of sugar instead of the recommended 12. Turns out even being "Chicken" I over shot the 12 per...

    Where To Purchase Grapes

    I've been enjoying the process of wine making with kits. These kits have introduced me to equipment and the hydrometer. Next harvest season I would like to experiment in purchasing grapes to crush. Where do you recommend. Do I have to obtain a contract? Thanks

    Figuring How Much Sugar

    Guess I over shot my goal of 13%. I didn't put as much sugar in the mix . I'm a slow learner..should have added the syrup one cup at a time. Hmmm. Thanks so much.

    Put my sugar in solution ...took reading 1.115 S.G. Read the ABV of possible 15%. Will that mellow or actually be 15% alcohol?

    Figuring How Much Sugar

    I've going to try to bump up my alcohol content to a 13% level on my Coconut Yuzu wine. I think I have the idea using Jack Kellers table...for 6 gallons to reach a 13% I would have to add 12 pounds of sugar. Can I use Cane Sugar as I didn't order but one pound of Corn Sugar?

Since it is a port type wine will there be a difference in the process? Do I stir it daily? Am I working myself into a frinzy? Thanks ahead of time for any "hints"...

    Hello from Texas

    Hope Harvey goes away soon. I'm north of I-20 and we are dry...at the moment. Hope everyone will be safe. I know there's more to worry about than the flooding as I've heard news reports of Gators coming on porches and actually people have fish swimming in house. Heard that today. Fire ants are...
