Sorry if this has come up already... but I want a definitive answer.. ok soo I picked about 300 lbs of tempranillo grapes. I have them in a 55 plus gallon barrel. Crushed the next day, then added 3 packets of red star day after that..OG is 25 brix. On the 9th day I have 8 brix and today is 11th day.. I added some sulfites but forgot to add yeast nutrient.. does the 8 brix seem on point?? I read to wait until its 1-2 brix to press into carboys?? Any advice would help. Thanks in advance
