Sorry to bug everyone, but I am just a bit nervous about my first wine making attempt. I am using a World Vineyard Washington Riesling - 6 gal. Yeast that came with the kit was Lavlin EC-1118. I started the kit on Saturday night. I have it covered with the lid on lightly. Starting sg of 1.082. It is now Tuesday and my sg has not changed. Yesterday, there was a cap of bubbles on the must. Today, there are bigger bubbles, but less of them. There still is a strong yeast smell. I can hear bubbling happening. The temps are low. Started out around 62 degrees. The last 2 days, I have put a space heater in the area and temps are up near 65. Should I be doing anything different? Continue to try and raise the temp? Just let it go? Thanks for the help.
