Has anyone used DME in their wine making? After some reading, I've heard people sometimes use 1 lb extra light DME per gallon of wine, but I'm having trouble finding the outcome of these batches.
From what I understand, DME adds body and mouth feel, and a bit of residual un-fermentable sugar. The extra light type doesn't add much flavor.
How much residual (un-fermentable) sugar would be left after all the fermentables are consumed by the yeast? Rather, for a 3 gallon batch of wine, using a total of 3 pounds extra light DME, and after all the yeasties ate all the sugar they can, what would a guesstimate of the final gravity be?
If this is the case, is it possible to carbonate this slightly sweet wine (using table sugar) made with DME and not get bottle bombs? I'm thinking a sweet carbonated Strawberry Wine would be fun.
