The blueberry wine recipe that I had asked for 10 pounds of sugar. I wasn’t where I needed to be on the hydrometer so I added about 2 more pounds by accident. I’m getting a ready of about 1.110. Does anyone think this will be too much? What should I do

You can try fermenting away. Mite leave residual sugar, mite not. Or add a few more blue berries, more water and make a little more wine. Probably don't want to dilute it too much without a bit more fruit. Arne.

I have experimented with reduced water plus high sugar/ alcohol in the primary.The intent was to add extra water any time I needed to top off a carboy. ,,,, 1.100 will work
