    Are you seeing rapid FermentationsAre this year? I am, my Petite Syrah went from a crush SG of 1.094 to 1.010 in four days at 68 degrees F. My juice buckets went from 1.094 to 1.002 in four days. One was on 212 yeast and the bucket on 71-B. The grapes are going to have speed burns on them when I press then!

    Yes I've had two recent wines ferment to dry, in three to four days.

    No, not with the six kit wines I've done.

    My WE Malbec/skins Started Fri @1.098. It's at 1.016 on Mon. I'll leave it on the skins a couple more days, but it will probably be < 1.000 by then.

    My ambient temp is stable @ 74 F
