I just started making wine about 8 months ago and just bottled my first batch Saturday night of Apple Cider Wine. It was delicious!
So now onto my next batch of wine; CherWi Wine! I bought a cherry wine base from the homebrew store over the weekend and am currently looking for the kiwi base. In the mean time, I am a little uncertain on how to start this! Since my apple cider wine came from the juice from my apple butter, this will be completely different for me.
I guess my questions are this:
1. The back of the cherry base and kiwi base give the recommended yeast to use. Since I will be putting both cherry and the kiwi together in one batch, how do I know which yeast to purchase? (We prefer sweeter wines)
2. Does anyone have a different recipe then the one that I have acquired from the back of the wine base?
3. Is it recommended to keep the wine in a dark place? I was keeping it in my spare bedroom's closet but it now has to be moved out of there and was wondering where to put it next.
4. Is it necessary to add all the chemicals to this batch? With my Apple Cider Wine all I did was add a yeast killer at the end. I used sugar as the yeast and the cleaner when everything needed to be cleaned.
Thanks for any help anyone can give!
