I use just sugar and yeast for my wine and its turned out fine, could someone fill me in on the tannin and other things that i see in alot of these recipes? I am new at this and it would be really awesome if someone could break down all the "talk" and ingredients.
Well, just like anything you make you can improve some a dish with some spices. Like if you're making spaghetti sauce- you could get by with tomato sauce and salt. But adding some oregano and garlic will make it better. Wine is the same way- a little tannin will give the wine some "bite", some acid blend will give some acidity and depth, and so on.
