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

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

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

Posted in thread: Apple/cherry wine still fermenting since August on 01-05-2013 at 12:42 AM
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
