I started making wine kits in January 2016. To date I am on kit #20, all red, a wide range of juice, all Winexpert. As I am starting to open a bottle once in a while of each of batch, I'm noticing that while I am liking nearly all of them (Eclipse & Selection), a common thought through most of them is that they are a little sweeter than what I like. In my recent batches, I've started to do primary fermentation 8 days, adding a day or two. Does anyone else feel this way about their kits? I prefer them a bit less sweet than they are coming out. What would the long term veterans do about this or is this just the taste of varietal of grape they have used? I'd love to knock them down a notch as regards to sweetness for my 2017 batches. Making about 20 kits annually.
