So I just got a batch of this together. I had to make some slight adjustments because there was no cherry pie filling at my local grocery store. So I substituted red raspberry filling for the cherry, and I used 2 grape concentrate, and 2 white grape raspberry. Hoping it turns out well. Thanks for the recipe!

Default campden tablets? degas?


Do we need to throw in any campden tablets? Also, do we need to degas before bottling?

a) not really. Campden is used at the beginning of a batch to forestall any yeast already present on fresh fruit from taking hold, and used at the end to help prevent from oxidation during bottling. Because there's no fresh fruit, as long as you don't splash a lot and use a bottling wand you should be fine. But then again, it wouldn't hurt anything if you added them.

b) I find that if your wine still has that much carbon dioxide dissolved in it, then it can stand to sit a while longer in the carboy anyways. But I don't degas even when I do rush a batch along. It loses a lot of the carbonation racking to the bottling bucket and what is there is already at equilibrium with the outside air pressure at room temperature so it doesn't pose a bottle bomb/rocket risk.

Enjoy!

Thinking about trying this as my first wine mostly a beer Brewer. .. do I need a 5 gallon carboy for the secondary or will a 6.5 be alright?
