I haven't added the yeast yet, I just mixed the sugar and chems with the strawberries last night.

How do I lower the SG before I put the yeast in? Just add some water? Take out some syrup and add water?

Anyways, WineCalc won't install on my windows 7 machine so I had to just follow the recipe and it looks like the recipe may have used imperial gallons as opposed to US gallons.

Thanks for your help, I don't think I'm dead yet, since the yeast isn't in and I think the liquid may still be too cool for the yeast to breed in, it feels cold, but I haven't temped it yet.

I dont think the sugar is fully dissolved. You started with 10# of sugar in 22# of strawberry. That reading is false. Stir it around more and take another reading

Should keep all posts about the same wine on the same thread.
