might sound stupid, but then maybe not, what about 8 pounds of suger yeast and water to make a slurry sollution for skeeter, total cost about $5.00 everyone wants to make wine and use the slurry, this might be a more direct route

I find it easier to follow the recipe. If you dont have a slurry from a previous batch. just follow the recipe and add a strong starter.

No problem.

Used my peach/strawberry slurry. It took off within hours. It has a nice amber color and almost completely clear now.

Doesn't always start properly if you don't use a slurry . I lucked out doing it a little different order with my last batch but I still used a slurry just put it together in different order .The warm weather makes it easier to start any wine I think IMO .
