    Thanks, but I'm not sure what that means. 60 -70 ppm So2. Is that normal? Or something that I
    should try to adjust? Thanks for your help.Its a small-fair amount of sulphur to keep the
    juice/wine from ...

    The bucket says Lodi Gold. It also has a sticker that says contains sulfur dioxide. I'm not
    sure if it is pastureized or not. I think I'll just wait a couple months and see how it is.Its
    not pasteuriz...

    My LHBS sells Alexander's concentrate in 46 oz. cans. It's made for making wine although
    appears to be fairly low end quality wise. If you do the math one can should add about 22
    gravity points to a 5...

    I assume wine kits are the best way to buy the juice (is it?). If it is, I'll have enough for a
    number if beers (or I suppose I could make wine with the left over juice). What is the best way
    to store...

    I bought a 6 gallon bucket of merlot juice from a refrigeratored truck. They said all I need to
    do is add yeast and wait. I did that and the OG was 1.032 prior to adding the yeast. I checked
    it 3 week...

    Muscat, Symphony, Semillon, Reisling, these will give good aromatics. I prefer the Symphony.
    These would work well with a saison/farmhouse ale as well as some variations of wheat beersNow
    to have some...

  • Posted in thread: What is a good grain replacement for extra light malt extract? on 05-28-2014 at 10:38 PM
    I think pale malt would be ok. Most extra light DME is darker than the description anyway.The
    SRMs are read immediately after processing. Extract will darken over time, so there is a
    deviation in colo...

    2-row my good friend. Pilsner would also be acceptable.

    Dont't take a big breath of CO2 while your leaned over the freezer. You could pass out and fall
    in..I wouldn't go that far. CO2 is quite harsh on the nose. Your natural instincts will have
    you jumping...
