What would you all think of grapefruit zest, peaches and medium toast American or French oak in a cheap Chardonnay kit? I would be planning on a 12.5-13% ABV.
I think you are well on your way to becoming one!Oops, you're right. I didn't make the temperature correction. Since the temperature at bottling time was about 78, .992 is probably correct. Even at that I would have expected the wine to taste dryer and harsher. BTW, in my last post I left out a crucial word. I meant to say, "I know I'm NOT an expert wine make"
Glad to hear you are pleased with your wine. Great work!Stabilized and started the clearing process for the Sauvignon Blanc. This was a kit I bought from WineLoversOnline.com the branding said "ABC Crafted". The stuff smells great, tastes great and really, really liked the grapefruit zest. Thanks @Rocky and @joeswine for all your help. @Rocky the wine is resting in a 5 gallon carboy plus a 1,500 ml wine bottle. Each filled up into the neck and has very little headspace.
Hi. I just ordered the exact same kit. Would you list the ingredients and process you did from start to finish? I want to enhance the kit. Grapefruit zest? Apple concentrate? Pri and secondary additions?Oh and I did take your advice on the grapefruit zest and Im going to start on your peach bellini soon too. I really appreciate all the suggestions youve posted here
