I know it is personal preference so answers will vary. When sweetening with sugar approximately how much do you use?
Skeeter pee 6 cups per 5 gallons? (right lon)
Jalapeno 4 tsps per gallon? Anyone?
Does anyone sweeten apple wine?
If I use honey to sweeten my 1 gallon of elderberry wine, what sort of amount are we talking? A cup? A half a cup? A tablespoon?Honey also is a good sweetener. Besides adding sweetness it seems to smooth out the harshness that is sometimes present.
It is just sugar that is dissolved in water, usually 2 parts sugar to 1 part water. My method: get your water boiling, turn the heat down, add the sugar, stir and stir andstir. The sugar will go from chrystals to a white colored mixture and after a little bit will come clear. Many say to keep simmering for a while to make it invert, but I usually use it after it clears. If you get it too hot it will get cloudy again and if you dump it in your wine then, the wine will cloud up. Then back to the waiting game again. Arne.Is that sugar that is upside down?
