A pinch of tannin would balance it out nicely. As well as help color retention and clearing.
Use wine yeast for wine. Its very forgiving and foolproof. It has been cultivated for
fermenting wine for c...

On second thought. I use wild Maine blueberries. Not domestic cultivated high bush blueberries.

8 days is plenty long for it to have fermented dry (done). Taking a sg reading is always wise,
