I’m a retired civil service member and retired Navy vet as well. Recently moved from the Florida panhandle to the Asheville, NC area. Started wine making this past June using Winexpert kits and have made four batches so far. Just bought 4 different (3 reds & 1 white) six gallon buckets of non concentrated varietal juice from Carolina Wine Supply in Yadkinville. Got them home and added nutrient, bentonite, checked specific gravity and added yeast. Was surprised to find the SG readings were very low at 1.072, 1.064, 1.030 & 1.022. My assumption is that the juice was permitted to warm up and the yeast, added prior to shipping, was able to kick in and the fermentation process started by the time I picked them up. Would be interested to hear any thoughts or opinions.
