Welches Jet fuel
Can I save this from being jet fuel?
Here's what I have now:
I started two 5 gallon batches about one week ago,
each batch contains:
10 cans of frozen concentrate
6 pounds of sugar
10 tsp acid blend
5 tsp pectic enzyme
5 tsp yeast nutrient
It's fermenting very well and heavy right now. I did not take any SG readings prior to starting (I'm new to wine making). Can or should I stop the fermentation to prevent this from being jet fuel? just add stabilizer now before it gets too far?
I suspect this will be jet fuel because I made one other batch like this and it turned out to be very strong, I tried to back sweeten it but then it was like sweetened jet fuel. I ended up diluting it with water/juice to make it drinkable.
Any suggestions to fix the two batches that I have going?
No real way to fix them short of making a small gravity batch and blending with the jet fuel.
You could dilute it with water.
or just ride it out, bottle, age a year, and i bet they won't taste like rocket fuel.
i've made plenty of strong mead in my days and it always comes out of secondary smelling and tasting like lighter fluid.
a year or two later and it is indeed the nectar of the gods.
Patience, patience. And some patience...is what will 'fix' this.
Thanks for the help, if I dilute does it matter when I start to dilute? now or wait until bottling?
