    Thanks Yooper. Was considering buying a tester kit. Do you think that's necessary?

  • Posted in thread: Sulphites on 10-19-2014 at 12:15 AM
    Back in June, I bought a couple 6 week Cellar Craft premium kits. They were expensive and they
    take a long time to age so I'm being a bit of a worrier about them. I decided to part with the
    instructio...

    Thanks Yooper. Should I do this immediately or can I sit in it for another month before I

    above links go to my strawberry and peach wines. They've been in the carboy for about 3 weeks
    and spent about 10 days in the bucket before that. My finger shows the wine level.The problem
    is that th...

    If I'm low on volume after the boil, I add water, after it's cooled, as I put it in the carboy.
    I check the gravity of re cooled wort and if adding water won't drop your gravity too much, add
    some to ...

    I think the small carboys will be my solution. This is my first peach wine and I don't want to
    change its character with a commercial wine. Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    I racked my peach wine from the bucket to my 3 gallon carboy. I wanted to get it sealed up and
    off the lees after 9 days of fermentation. In the end, I ended up with a lot of lees in my
    carboy because...

    My Shiraz has been sitting in the carboy for 2 months now and there's a thin layer of lees on
    the bottom. It's time to rack it off the lees. I used a drill initially to do some degassing
    but I wasn't ...

    You're probably right. I'll be able to make due with a 3 gallon carboy bc there's a lot of lees
    with strawberry wine. How much longer can I wait until I rack it to a smaller carboy? Or should
    I do it ...

    I'm brewing a batch of strawberry wine and just transferred from the bucket to carboy on day
    six. I wanted to get it In the carboy while it was still pretty active because I'm concerned
    about my volum...
