This is my 4th year trying to make a decent wine and I could use some help. This year I’m aiming for a Rosè do to a poor red yield.
I have almost 20 gallons of crushed grapes. Currently I’m at the last day(#5) of fermentation before pressing. I went with the vintage harvest BV7 yeast. Pre-yeast hydrometer reading was 1.075%ABV.
I would like to know what would be the recommend amount of water/sugar ratio? Also, the color. Is there anything I can do to enhance it somehow?



Thank you.

What grapes did you use? And how much of each?

You ask about sugar. What is the purpose for this sugar? Are you talking about adding sugar to get more alcohol, or are you asking about sweetening the wine after stabilizing it?
