    need different Avery labels

    I’m personally not a fan of the glossy labels anyway. I think the matte ones look better.

    Ground Cherry - Wow!

    I planted about 2 dozen ground cherries and it took them 3 to 4 weeks before they germinated.

    Did you use carbon with that kit? My Chardonnay seems a lot darker.

    Here’s my FW Chardonnay. It’s been racked twice and started a month ago. The color is somewhat dark.

    I hate to be negative, but I’m not sure how much help the carbon was to my Chardonnay?

    I sure hope you’re right. So far a week after racking and adding K and C my Chardonnay still seems dark.

    Attached is a photo of my FW Chardonnay after one week of being racked. I put a white towel behind it. I hope I’m wrong, but I’m not feeling that confident that the carbon addition is making the wine lighter in color.

    I purchased the FW Chardonnay kit in the middle of March sometime. I followed the directions except fermentation ceased in less than 14 days with a SG reading of .994 so I racked the wine then. I really didn’t see anything in the kit that looked like the normal bentonite I have used (gray tan...

    Other Finer Wine Zinfandel ?

    Making the FW Travola Chardonnay now. It’s been a new experience with the carbon in the kit. It looks like the carbon is doing it’s job.

    The Kieselsol and Chitosan were added to the carboy after racking out of the Big Mouth. Just over night there seems to be a big change and lots of the carbon is on the bottom of the carboy.

    I’m doing the FW Chardonnay kit and have followed the directions with the kit before reading all this. Just last night I degassed, stabilized, and added the fining agents. Attaching a photo of my wine at the start, right before racking and stabilizing, and the next day after. There is a big...

    I just started a Chardonnay FW kit. You add the carbon at the very start. I’m not sure how long it takes to clear, but right now it’s black.

    Finer Wine Kits

    The FW Forte kits come 1.5 oz of oak cubes. If I’m aging for a year in a carboy how long should I leave the cubes?
