  • Posted in thread: Organic Wine kits? on 09-18-2014 at 11:59 AM
    Can you drink normel wine with no problem? If yes then a reguler kit should be safe. If you
    can't drink reguler wine try making a fruit wine. Different sprays to no spray. They have fruit
    wine kits. O...

    Treat with sulfa right away. Let sit 12-24 hours and add a well started yeast starter using
    domesticated yeast. The domestic yeast can tolerate higher sulfa levels so you can add sooner
    to prevent rei...

    Your wine should be fine. No need to panic over the bung, pliers or flies. I have certainly
    done worse with my wines, and have yet to dump one:-) The coffe filters should be fine. You can
    airlock if y...

    Only problem with using a tall racking cane in a small jug. When the jug is empty and you take
    your hand off of the tall racking cane, the whole thing unbalances and tumbles down, crash! So
    do not lea...

    15%abv is the uper limet for a lot of wine yeast. So it is most likely "done" fermenting. There
    is some suger left, but not a lot. It may slowly ferment down a little more over time. Rack it
    into a ca...

    Have you used yeast nutriants or any yeast energizer? Sometimes a little extra helps,
    especially with the smells you described. Temp plays a big part in fermentaiin as well. Make
    sure the must is arou...

  • Posted in thread: plum wine clearing -- not on 08-17-2014 at 03:38 PM
    My plum clears fine. I do use peptic enzyme to start. My rubarb on the other hand has never
    cleared on its own. I have tried many different things, none worked. I have to use super klear
    every time. P...

  • Posted in thread: Vino Italiano Gewurztraminer Question About Backsweetening on 08-15-2014 at 12:31 PM
    I prefure the juice method of backsweetening. I just thaw the juice and add to tast. Going
    lighter then you think. Easy to add more later, not possible to take it out! I think the fruit
    juice adds to ...

    Split your must into two buckets for fermentaion. Lows has food grade five gal pails. Or use a
    new trash can for fermentaion. Brute makes a nice mid size one. You will not be leaving the
    wine in for l...
