I decided to try making wine as an afterthought so I have a couple questions:
Is the way we made the juice ok for wine?
How much water should I add to the juice?
Just add sugar to the desired OG?
Thanks!
I have no idea how to do it without the fruit, sorry!

Ideally you wouldn't add any more water, use the juice you have and add sugar to your desired OG. Add nutrient & yeast and ferment away!

What is the difference between k1v116 and 71b-1122 that you could describe? Have you found a yeast you like better? Do you have a nutrient preference? Have you used dextrose instead of table sugar and if so is there a difference? Thank you for your time.

The 71B is purported to reduce more of the malic acid during fermentation, so if the berries have a "bite" to them, that is my preference but most years our berries are nice and sweet so I haven't really noticed a huge difference in the final product.

The wine from last summer was just bottled, and it was so rich that I oaked it. I think it will be very nice in the end (it was awesome at bottling!) and I used 71B.

I am making a one gal batch of this, followed recipe exactly and used D47 yeast. I am on day 4 of primary, tomorrow is racking to secondary day. Today when stirring, its starting to get pretty sulfury, anything to worry about? Should I take any remedial action when I rack tomorrow?

Thanks!

You could add some yeast nutrient, one teaspoon, dissolved in some of the wine first (to avoid a volcano due to nucleation points!), and "splash rack" when you rack tomorrow. A sulfur note is not a good sign, but you may be able to fix it if you start quickly.

Thanks Yooper! I gave it a really vigorous stir tonight to try and oxygenate the must, I will follow your instructions tomorrow.
