I know there are a couple threads out there for this kit, but I have only seen a few comments here and there about doing it as an extended maceration. I plan to do this one as the same way as the other couple extended maceration kits I have done: 8-9 weeks on the skins. @jgmann67 I know in another thread you said you plan to do this one soon as EM for 4-5 weeks. Would be interesting to find a way to swap a bottle and compare... Just got the kit today from Label Peelers, and noticed something interesting. The instructions had no mention of a grape skin bag, even though there was clearly one included. I looked up the instructions on Winexpert's website and I think they sent the wrong instructions. No big deal, but they were included in the bag of chems which also included the yeast. The included yeast was EC-1118. Is this still the standard yeast for this kit, or have they switched it to rc-212 or something else? The other eclipse kits I recently got had 212.
