This is my first Cellar Craft kit in over 10 years, and also first CC with grapeskins. I have to get a bit creative, as Cellar Craft has chosen to combine the sulfite and sorbate in one package. I haven't used sorbate in a decade either, so I had to find out that my eclipse kits have a 4 gram packet of sulfite, which is roughly 3/4tsp. The juice has almost no aroma...I hope that is not a bad sign. It will make less alcohol than my typical eclipse kits, with the SG being only 1.07 before grapeskin addition. Allowing .022 for that, will get me a wine in the 13%ish range.
