    You will be disappointed to know that I did not do any of that stuff other than follow
    directions that came with the kit. This was my third kit wine and it was actually pretty
    expensive compared to th...

    I bulk aged my wine for over a year, then bottled and it sat for 2 months to eliminate the
    bottle shock. I popped a bottle and tasted it, it really did not taste like much of anything at
    all. I expect...

  • Posted in thread: Bottle Time after bulk aging on 12-30-2014 at 01:51 PM
    When I bottled last week, it seemed like it was actually gas free, so now that I waited that
    long, that issue resolved itself. I am more or less curious if longer bulk age time means less
    bottle age t...

    For no other reason other than laziness, I did not bottle my Carmenare for nearly a year. I had
    started to bottle, but then noticed it was still very gassy after about 6 months. I whipped it
    really go...

    I have read some articles and posts about back sweetening beer, but have not really found what
    I need. I attempted to make an Orange/Citrus Cream ale (not like an orangcicle just for
    clarification) ju...

    I racked it of what ever it was, tasted and all seems to be fine. I will be out of town for a
    few days so when I get back I will check on it again and see how we are doing. I will probably
    re-rack at ...

    The fg actually has not changed I was going off memory and remembered when testing last night
    that the hydrometer rested between #s. I did not us Compton tabs on this wine. But after
    tasting it it see...

    I retested and the FG was .995 from 1.086 I believe, I am horrible about writing that stuff
    down. It is supposed to be a carmenere. I took a pic of it in a clear class so maybe you can
    see what the is...

    I did not measure after adding sulfites and chitosan but before was .996 before adding the
    chemicals. I will measure tomorrow but am wondering how I can rack and keep whatever is
    floating on top of th...

    Sorry for reposting this but I got no response and I am wondering what to do?This is only my
    third batch of wine, but neither of the other two looked like this at this stage. I am supposed
    to get read...
