I recently started (just about 30 minutes ago) a "Kirschewein" as I am calling it.
64oz of 100% cherry Juicy juice with no preservatives or anything special.
1 packet of Redstar Champagne Yeast.
1 cup of Turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw) melted in about 5 oz. of water.
I poured out a few ounces of the juice to make up for the added sugar. Stirred it all up and set it up in my fermentation area (my closet in my dorm) and give it about 5 days it should be ready. Maybe...
Has anyone done this before? Does anyone know what this will do to the "kirschewein"? I am trying to find a way to sweeten, preferably not back sweetening though, the brew. I just don't want to back sweeten it for some reason.
Let me know what you guys think.
