I have an awful feeling that I may have just ruined my first ever batch of wine.. I moved into my new home in August and in oyr garden we have a huge Apple tree. Originally I planned to make cider with them but then thought I would give Apple wine a go. I had 12Kg of Apples that I have chopped up and put into my 25litre container with 4Kg of Sugar and 40grams of Citric acid. The recipe that I was using said to chop up 2.75kg's of Apples at a time and simmer them in a pan with 4.5 litres of water. So I repeated that process 4 times and then added my Sugar and Citric acid at the end.. The mistake that I have made though was very soon after I added the packet of Yeast and Yeast nutirents.. It wasnt until after I done this I remembered that i was supposed to wait for the mixture to cool down! In a bid to try and save it I have put the container into a bath full of cold water to cool it down quicker, but i worry it may be too late and that I have killed my Yeast?.. Any help greatly appreciated, I'll be very disappointed if I have wasted all those apples!!
