I transfered my elderberry wine to their respective secondary containers today. I did not take a hyrometer reading because I was being all nutty about sanitation and it slipped my mind.
I did taste it though. It is quite dry but not objectionable at all. One thing I noticed is that it is quite powerful in the alcoholic department. Now I wish I had tested it.
Think I could get away with lowering my hyrometer taped to a string into the carboy?
I am just glad my experiment is on track so far,
