    Any advice here on the best Amarone kits out there? It's my favorite wine, but at $50 plus per
    bottle, I'm looking for a great kit to make it more affordably.Thank you.

    I would leave it there even longer, 1-6 months longer.This way it will degas itself and bulk
    age.Did you use oak in the secondary?Oak chip exposure may be why they are suggesting you rack
    early. The l...

    Hello all,In the midst of my first attempt at wine. Doing a Cab kit. Moved wine to secondary on
    11/27/16. My kit instructions said to let it sit in secondary for only 5 to 7 days, then move
    to bucket ...

    Usually we do whole cinnamon sticks. Ground never really mixes well. I did one stick in a
    gallon for 2 weeks and it was very mild, would go a month next time.Was this is then secondary
    or primary?

    No.The glass gallon jugs are not to the best of my knowledge suitable for pressurizing. Quite
    possible thy could explode. Growlers sre similarly problematic.Many Thanks!

    I have two one gallons jugs finishing up fermenting. Can I simply add the appropriate amount of
    priming sugar and a bit of cinnamon extract to two empty one gallon jugs, transfer contents of
    primary j...

    was going to add ground, but perhaps extract is a better option.

    Ok, been brewing only beers, but have now attempted my hand at a hard cider. I currently have
    two one gallon jugs fermenting. One was made with adding brown sugar, the other I added frozen
    apple juice...

    American 2-row or American Pale malt will do fine. They have a diastatic power of about 130.
    You want to have a minimum of 30 per lb of mash ingredients. 6-row has a DP more like
    160.Canadian grains s...

    The pumpkin contains a lot of unfermentable starch. You need to mash it with some malt to
    convert the starch to sugar so the yeast can eat it. 6 row malts typically can convert more
    starches to sugars...
