Help, I think i cooked my wine.
my house was pretty chilly when i started a five gallon batch of red wine a few weeks ago.
I thought it clever to put a space heater on the carboy to expedite fermenting.
it was pretty foamy and bubbling had stopped.
my friend then educated me on yeasts intolerance for heat so i added another packet of pasteur red yeast to it.
a few days later it is bubbling slowly.
Is the wine still good? If so, when should i rack it?
this is common. let it sit. wait and wait totally denying anything is wrong and in a few weeks your tastebuds will lett you know. 90 percent chance it will be fine. you might have even "discovered" a new technique. try searching this site for cooked wine or overheated wine or something like that
Some fruit wines do get heated. Maybe by just pouring boiling water over the fruit.
