    As it turns out, got sucked into the whole teaching thing and it got put on hold. Thanks for
    reminding me :)

    It was one of my first recipes so you are correct that the campden comes in at the end. Glad
    you liked though!Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

    I agree. Bread yeasts make... well... bread-y tasting wine. A pack of redstar runs less than
    $0.50 and will make a shocking difference. The yeast is bread (as in producing offspring, not
    food) to floc...

    I have a quick question. I started this on Wednesday and its OG was 1.110. I checked it today
    and its only down to 1.080 and I do not see much for airlock activity. There are bubbles on the
    top of the...

    out to make a...

    hmm...don't have any more juice unfortunately..I could try and get some..it's pretty important
    to top up the secondary right? It will start fermenting again though right..I'm hoping for
    something pret...

    Best... job... EVER.As long as you keep the sloshing about to a minimum it'll be fine, esp if
    there's still a small amount of fermentation going on. The yeast will use any oxygen up right
    quick as lon...

    Alright then, I was planning on having one clear, one not clear...I'm expecting to leave it at
    least 2 months before I drink it..I'm unsure about the idea of secondary, for one I'm paranoid
    about oxid...
