Lol! Not a problem. I “misremember” all the time! I think.
Wouldn't that kit be a little old now? I have a triple batch of the wine that I just bottled a few weeks ago. If you do get it, I suggest that you check the juice for oxidation and add fresh chemicals, i.e. yeast, potassium metabisulfie and potassium sorbate (if applicable).What are your thoughts on the Symphony Gewurztraminer? Can't decide if I should grab one.
Don't worry about the age as long as it was stored properly. I bought a LE15 Fortitude kit 3 weeks ago at a steep discount from the local brew shop that's going out of business. That's a LE15, so it came out early 2016, so it's been on the shelf for 4 years.I assume, as it got available in March last year, that it's around 1 year old by now.
Swedeman, I did not say that you should not buy the kit but I stand by my recommendation to use fresh yeast, K-meta and K-sorbate. Firstly, you are making a white wine which is not as hardy as a red. Secondly, we are only talking about a buck's worth of yeast and chemicals. I think that is good insurance for 30 or so bottles of wine. Thirdly, checking for oxidation is good practice in any case. Look at the color of the juice for browning and take a whiff of it. I will allow, though, if you have already purchased the kit, an off odor or color should not dissuade you from proceeding as it is mostly sunk cost and a little labor.What are your thoughts on the Symphony Gewurztraminer?
