Just pitched the yeast for a Pinot Gris.
SG was 1.090 temp at 70F.
Must tasted great.
Can't wait until it's bubbling away!
Anyone else make this kit?

I've got two full and four empty carboys in my wine making area. But two primaries in action, so two of the empties will be full before the week is out.

Might have to hide the other two.

It's clearing now and looks amazing.
Going to rack and top up in a couple of days.

So it's been a few days since stabilizing and it is already so clear! I'll get a pic up as soon as I can get to it.
Racking sometime this week. I plan on filtering in a few more weeks.

Well I checked my sg this morning and it's at 1.099 already. I just pitched the yeast last Sat so in 6 day's I'm at secondary already? I want to follow this kit to the letter and the instructions do say approx 14 days. Is this possible to happen this fast or should I sit tight and leave it in primary a little longer? Thanks

It's happenening about how it's supposed to. Temperature and the strength of that particular batch of yeast and other factors can affect the exact time.
Next week You should be able to rack to secondary. :) Just keep that hydrometer clean and sanitized.

Well, I bottled this kit last night. It was perfectly clear, and tasted AMAZING for such a young wine. My wife said it already tastes better than Cavit Pino Grigio! I guess there are good things to come. I will try to attach a pic of the finished product with my label! :b
