    Lemon juice

    Hi I cut some pears up for freezing and I put them in water with a little lemon juice in it until I got them in freezer bags, and it kept the pears from turning brown. I drained them before putting them in the bags. will the lemon juice hurt the flavor of the wine made with them? Thanks Koda

    Sg question

    I started my last batch with a 1.100 starting sg, it finished at 0.995. my question is what is the alcohol content of that batch. I get how it works for the most part and I never start without it now. but sometimes I still get lost on the alcohol content. Thanks Koda
