I made an awesome blueberry wine, perfectly fine...got distracted when measuring my sorbate (gotta love being a parent, no?) The end result is definitely a bubblegum aftertaste. Any suggestions, other than killing the kid?:(

The only thing that can be done is make another batch or if you have another batch to blend it.

Instead of 2.5 t. of sorbate in 5 gallons, it was doubled (5 t.)

I believe I still have the must frozen in it's original nylon sock bags...at about 11% alc., it might be hard to start refermentation.
