So I just started a batch yesterday of strawberry wine. Using a 5 gallon glass jug i put in about 24lbs of strawberries(cut up not mashed) and 10lbs of sugar. Let that sit for a few hours then added in water to about 4 inches from the top and added in 5tsp of North Mountain Acid Blend, 2.5tsp of Pectic Enzyme, 1.25tsp of Tannin and a pack of wine yeast. I'm using a air lock with the 2 chambers and put in everclear instead of water in the air lock, had a good burp going when I went to bed. Woke up the next morning after id say 10hrs of the wine fermentation started and my wine was pushing itself out of my air lock, I poured out some liquid from the batch and cleaned the plug and air lock then put everything back and it did it again later today so I repeated the process of pouring out some liquid. Please help, not sure why its doing this. As you can see in the picture the wine is burping up into the air lock, it seems like the liquid i dump is being replaced.
