Well here it goes! Very Black Cherry wine kit but with thawed homemade Raspberry juice pressed and squeezed by Mom this summer. The Very Black Cherry Juice from the kit went to Mom to make jelly! Asked the wine making store how much juice I needed and they said 7L. Ooops got the kit and only needed 5.4L. I still put in the full 7L of Rasp juice and boy does it smell good!! I hope this works out. A little scared as the SG is to be 1.05 to 1.06 and mine read 1.01. We will see what the SG is after 14 days. I think it will be just fine. Will be interesting to see what colour the wine will be when bottled. The juice looks like fresh oxygenated blood. Nice bright red. Also the juice itself is not clear either wonder what that will do during the next stage of stabilizing and clearing the wine. Will keep you posted. First is to see if the yest will react in the next couple of days.
