I believe i already added my sorbate, but from researching the topic, i believe that I will be able to achieve fermentation after sorbate regardless, as my wine is still very low in alcohol content and very high in sugars. read the article.

Well I didn't really get any further fermentation, but the raisins and oranges gave it a lot of flavor. While this wine is still weak it is much more drinkable now.

didnt get too much more fermentation, if any at all. yet i did accomplish a better testing wine by adding the oranges and the raisins. turned this mist kit into something more drinkable. will never purchase a mist kit.

If you bump up the sugar at fermentation(about 4 pounds) and add some very ripe bananas you will have a higher ABV and wine with more body.
Mist wines can be very good. I have 2 more to start and one in primary that were Christmas gifts. My first 2 kits were not too bad but not much body and abv of 6.9.
