I will have to remember to use the pressed berries next time. I already put the berries in my compost pile.
It is the measure of total acidity. It was 6.0 g/l or 6%. Table wine is suppose to be 6-7%. Not sure how country wine relate to this or if blueberry should fall in the same range.your PH is well in range, your color looks great, I do all sweet country wines as primitive as possible, what are you calling TA?
same thing stated differently, yes you are on target, looks like all that's left is the best ingredient Time,, I age everything, wine just gets better with time, i make skeeter pee port to alow my wines to age,, lolIt is the measure of total acidity.

Thanks. this batch was 7lbs blueberries per gal. I had to add acid blend at start since the starting PH was 3.64 and TA was 3.It doesn’t get much better!
I run high fruit so my TA is close to one per liter which forces me to back sweeten to 1.010.
yes on country wines, it takes sugar to bring out the flavor, i when my wine is ready to bottle , i add dry sugar and stir with a carboy stirrer attached to my cordless drill, if you did not add sorbate when you added more concentrate . then it might start fermenting again, every time a ferment ends and before you sweeten you need to k-meta and sorbate before you back sweeten,I got the blueberry concentrate to back sweeten the blueberry wine. I started the blueberries on 9-28-2020. Last rack and k-meta was on 10-21-2020. so later this month I would like to rack, add k -meta and potassium sorbate and then add a qt of blueberry concentrate. From my samples we did, we liked it when Sg was 1.010 and 1.020 so a qt will but it around 1.015.
can I add everything at racking or should I add the blueberry concentrate a little later. I plan to leave it in carboy another month or so to make sure it clears again after adding the concentrate.
using the blueberry concentrate to back sweeten really bought the flavor forward. Before it had a watery taste at the end and this really helped. it made the blueberry flavor more intense and enjoyable.
