Default Tomato Wine Status

Here is my tomato wine 5 days after pitching yeast, and racked of gross lees. I assumed it would have more color to it.

Most of the color is in the pulp, not the juice. Looks good.

I've always seen it come out a nice golden, maybe a touch orange color. Looks good though!

Depends on your SG, maybe topping off would be good.

If you look at a quart of canned tomatoes the juice in there is also golden not red. There would be no harm if you dropped a few elderberries in there for some tannin and color WVMJ

I have been trying to decide what to top it off with. Right not there is so much CO2 in it that there is no urgency. You can see with the jar on the right the foam got pretty high.

What do you suggest? I had thought about some tomato juice.

Mountain Jack How many do you think I should use? Would they mix with the peppercorns? and Where is Karnage

My tomato wine is light golden in color, never red or even pink and I use super ripe tomatoes.

You can top up with any white wine, like a cheap pinot grigio or something like that.

Depends if you used Red Green. Karnage is right next to Mahem WV, just to the right of it. It depends how red you want it, a little red a little handful, a lot red a big handful but then it might start tasting like elderberries more than tomaters. WVMJ

Kaos is to our north, Havoc to the south, Befuddlement valley obviously to the East right near the bay of Maryland. FOr some reason folks that come to visit us never make it, or back out................ WVMJ
