I've got a ton of questions but this one is the one bugging me the most. I've been buying different kits, but at $60 for 2 merlot kits at costco, I had to buy it. Question is, I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to make the wine drier than it is when just following the regular directions. I've read about adding ascorbic acid to make it drier, but hoping to get some advice from somebody thats actually tried it. If it works, when to add it? Does it work at all? Are there other options to dry your wine? Thanks in advance for any help.
