I'm just wondering if this is possible. My local home brew shop recommended trying 2 weeks in primary to get more exposure to the skins. I'm thinking of trying this with the Eclipse Merlot kit I just bought. Has anyone tried this? We usually do 1 week in primary (for all kits) and squeeze the grape skins around 5 of those nights with big gloves to get the juice out, and a final squeeze when we rack.
