Started a new patch of wine yesterday, plum this time, calls for 20 lbs. of plums for 5 gallons. I thought I had it made, I checked off all the ingredients as I put them in the bucket, then I moved it to the spare bathroom where I do the initial 7 day fermentation, and since the last 2 batches of wine lost about 1/2 gallon of head space when I transferred it to the secondary fermentation< I decided to top up early and added 1/2 gallon extra water. After doing so I realized I forgot 1 of the ingredients, the sugar. So now, my 20 lbs. of plums is supporting 7 gallons of wine. My idea is to add 1 gallon of juice to it when I transfer it to the secondary. does any one have a better idea? the SG is 1.1101, so there will be alc. I just don't know about flavor.
