No I didn'tDid you test the pH and acidity of the must?
I was told at the home brew shop that campden tablets are a safer and more reliable way to get the dose correct? Oh dear!I agree with Wade. If you plan on making more wine I suggest get a pound of Potassium Metabisulfite. Campden tabs come in different strengths and can easily be Over Dosed
yep totally agree. racking is a very simply way to get rid of the "bad" stuff. we rack wine up to 5~7 times to get it clear sometimes. rather that way than using a refining agent. the fish derived stuff works very fast though. bentonite works ok, but is probably easier on the wine since it is easier to rack off being clay.Yep, that broken glass grindy material at the bottom is wine diamonds. Glad that your wines are really coming to life! Time is on your side when making wine!
