I have read that you can step feed your must, now I understand that you need to do SG readings, so if you have done your beginning SG reading, ex- 1.090 and then you re-feed some sugar the next day-whenever, if the SG has dropped to a level ex- 1.050 that you measure, then would you re-measure after you do the re-feed, or how would you go about finding the ABV, looks to me you would have to start after the re-feed as you do at the beginning, and go to finish, for a second time, but you would need to add in the first feed SG readings. The way I see it = .090 - .050 = .040 , then re-feed, SG goes back up to .090, then you let it finish out to .995, 1.090 - 0.995 = .095 so first SG ABV = .040 +(second SG ABV) = .095 ==.135 X 131.25 = 17.718_ABV . Am I anywhere near being right or how should this be done, this step feeding seems like a way to increase the ABV of your wine to pretty strong Wine, if I am thinking correctly..
