    For what is the zest extract used for? Is using of extract comparable to adding zest directly?

    Zest extract is the base ingredient mix with some form of alcohol.
    Like Everlleer allow it to set up for a month and making a liquor out of it
    Zest on the other hand is a direct ingredient added to the primary of the wines base, or secondary depending on how you are thinking. Got it!

    Thank you. But is zest extract used in the wine making process? And when in the wine making process will you use the extract?

    Thank you for your help

    No the zest extract is used as a rule in making liquors.

    I have found when making an fpac aka tweaking or blending, the simple rule is that whatever flavour you add last predominates, the overall flavour and if used with caution works well, to change the flavour the way you want, whether subtely or substantially, depending, on how much you add, use it with caution, is the thing to remember, IMHO they are also easy to add , because, they predominate, the overall flavour, just dont do it when you have had a few ;-) because when u sober up the flavour isnt how u imagined it, the night before ;-)

    It all depends on what you want to do.
    To make a partnership with the wine it goes in the primary, if you add it to the secondary it becomes a background flavor, it takes practice and planning.
