I am not used to making wine with F-packs because I do not like sweet wine. I did not know this wine came with an F-pack and was surprised to find one. I did not want a sweet wine so after reading many threads here I dumped the F-pack into the primary. I often take a finger taste of the juice when I start a kit to assure myself that the juice is good and I am off to a good start. AFTER I dumped the F-pack into the primary I tasted it, and did not like the taste of the, juice, syrup, concoction. It did not taste like concentrated juice that I am used to, but more like a chemical sweetener and I was sorry I used it. I was in my basement today doing wine making stuff and I decided to taste this, only six weeks old. I could swear I can taste the "off taste" of the F-pact. Is it me or has anyone else experienced this?
