This is my first attempt at making wine after brewing many batches of beer over the past few years. I bought a wine expert kit and have been following the instructions, but my fermentation seems to be taking quite a bit longer then I think it should. After 48 hours it bubbled like crazy for 3 days straight and after 7 days was still slowly bubbling. I checked the gravity today and got a reading of 1.024 after 8 days. My original gravity was 1.056. According to the instructions I should have a gravity close to .99 or below. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
It's going, just slower than the instructions say. Maybe your home is at a cooler temperature than the instructions are designed for. It doesn't matter, just wait until the SG is where it is supposed to be before proceeding with the next step.
