    Best bet is to use a single pack, and make a yeast starter. 1 cup of water, 1/4 cup of sugar,
    yeast. Let it go crazy for 12 hours, and pitch! Even half this volume/sugar will still be more
    effective t...

    I know. My bad. I got a little preachy. I like to learn the hardway, and just trying to help
    others out!

    Of course. 95%+ dry pitches probably work out fine! But why risk it? What if it was a batch of
    hard picked blackberries...that took you 8 hours to pick and 2 hours to clean? Sure would suck
    for it to ...

    I like less additives in my wine, so I use K-Meta directly. No Tablets. Just get a 1/8, 1/16,

    Dude, just spend some time researching. There will be someone nice enough who will spell it out
    for you, but there is a wealth of resources on the most basic of basic wine making.

    I don't think a double freezing is needed - seems kind of silly. Once frozen, water ruptures
    the cells walls, and that's it. Freezing again? ??Also, if you ferment on the fruit (I always
    do) they will...

    I'd go a bit more, I'd use all 6 lbs, honestly. I've never used raisins, in any of my 40
    batches of fruit wine, and people rave of them. It's up to you. Do you want grape/cherry, or
    cherry wine?I've m...

    wow. 3 replies in 3 minutes? Coordinated attack!
