    I pitched my yeast yesterday morning and have this today at 5pm. Temp is 72, not much peculating yet. Thoughts? ImageUploadedByWine Making1496783210.449413.jpg

    Punch it down, stir, gently [GENTLY] squeeze the mesh bag, and repeat every 6 - 12 hours until all that bubbling and fizzing stops.

    It looks great!

    Which yeast did you use?

    It looks like it's well on the way. Stick with the plan! Punch, stir, gently squeeze, all until it ferments to dryness. Check your SG daily. In another couple weeks, you'll be drinking Dragon's Blood ... or as one YouTuber calls it "Panty Dropper Wine."
