Default Medium, dry etc.

Since most wines are done fermenting around 1.000 - .090 I was wondering if there was a certain range to back sweeten to.

For example if I like a medium wine, should I sweeten to a certain gravity level?

I was not sure if there was a certain reading that equaled a certain sweetness.

I find 1.015-1.02 medium sweet, but I'm sure it depends on a particular person's palate.

Make blackberry wine and have to split my take with the Farmer. Make his 1.020 and still not sweet enough for him. This year asked me if I could make the wine without Alcohol? Told him no, but Jesus could....
