My friend wants me to help her make a batch of blueberry wine. So far I have only made Apfelwein and some basic jail brew. I brew beer, wine is not my specialty. But... since she asked nicely I told her I would help any way I could. Farther down the page is a simple recipe (10lbs blueberries, 10lbs cane sugar, and a few other things I am sure I can find at the LHBS). But I have a few questions.
#1. Cane sugar or dextrose? Personally I prefer working w/ dextrose. Any ideas on which would be better?
#2. The recipe used Montrachete, what should I use if she wants a sweeter tasting wine?
#3. The recipe also used Energizer, Nutrient, Crushed Campden Tablets, pectic enzyme, and Acid Blend. Is this all necessary?
Thanks for your help on this. Its important that I have some sort of an idea on how to make wine when I go over to help her out.
