    I started it in early June. Last month I added some bentonite because it had a slight haze. Now
    it's crystal clear. The SG was .992 today before I sweetened it. Right now it's sitting in a
    carboy. Hop...

    Well, I ended up having to dump all of this wine down the sink. It was not drinkable. It's such
    a shame because the wine, aside from being dry, tasted great before sweetening with sugar. My
    guess is t...

    Thanks for the help - it's gives me a few things to try next time. Oh, and one last question,
    will decanting help out my situation or should I just hold my nose when I drink it? :o

    I added 1/2 cup of sugar to sweeten it (1 gallon batch) and then I added 1/2 tsp of pot
    sorbate. I was out of corks so I let it set in a carboy for a month before I bottled it. When I
    bottled it I did...

    So tonight my wife opens up my recently bottled apple wine which tasted great when I bottled
    it. With my first sip I got I could smell sulfur right away. The wine tastes fine, but the
    sulfur smell rea...

    I did add some cinnamon sticks during fermentation, but I can't taste any hint of it at all. I
    guess I didn't add enough. Maybe I'll throw a bottle in the crock pot and then add some spices
    until I li...

    I have got some apple wine that I need to bottle and I am wanting to spice a couple of bottles
    of it for Thanksgiving/Christmas. Has anyone ever added any spices directly into the bottle
    before corkin...

  • Posted in thread: Filter System Question on 04-13-2013 at 02:16 PM
    I was thinking about making a filter system and I was wondering if anyone sees a problem with
    my design. I am thinking about using a whole house filter and a small food grade pump to
    circulate the win...

    Thinking back I think I may have racked this wine too early. I had a couple other gallons of
    wine going that needed racked and I decided to go ahead and rack this one since I had eveything
    out. It was...

    The bubbles are pretty large when they rise to the top of the carboy and there are not a lot of
    them. They do not look like the normal fermentation bubbles. I am pretty new at this so I
    cannot tell wh...
