Ok I bottled the Chardonay last week and the KR Trilogy this weekend both tasted pretty good:dg
Now in the fermenter I started a KR Merlot and also started a Winexpert Chilean Cabernet sauvignon 15 litres, The winexpert kit sugested SG 1.080 to 1.100 the SG reading is 1.068 is that to low ? or is just me, BTW I added the right amount of water to 6 gallons (yes I measured )
Anyway is that reading normal or ??????:a1
Thank You Guys
Papa B:i

Mix it really well. Let it sit for a half an hour and then take another reading. It takes a few minutes for the concentrated sugars to fully dissolve and combine with the water.

You should be ok. Just give it a good stir every now and then.
