    I only punched it down the first three days or so. Haven't touched it since. It will need to be
    transfered to a couple of 1gal jugs soon, need the bucket for a batch of cherry I'm getting
    ready to do ...

    Well, it's been going for about a week now. Smelled absolutely horrendous the last time I poped
    the lid off to punch down the blueberries. Here's hoping for the best!

    I will once it's down under 1.030 and I rack it off the fruit. It'll go into a couple of gallon
    jugs at that point. I have my choice of gallon jugs, a brew bucket, or 5gal carboy. I prefer to
    keep fru...

    My first batch of mead (blueberry) shows virtually no airlock activity. I can tell when I open
    it up to punch down the blueberries that it is fermenting, but I only have a 2.5gal batch going
    in a 6.5g...

    OP: Can you phrase that as a question??? And Yuri is correct, brandy is a distilled liquor.
    Wine doesn't just miraculously turn into brandy if you leave it sitting around. Most domestic
    beers are 4-9%...

    Ok, just started a blueberry mead. I had a 3lb bag of frozen blueberries in the freezer (the
    tiny baking kind) and I didn't figure they were enough for even a gallon batch of wine, but
    throw in 5lbs o...

    Wasn't aware of that, thanks for the info! As far as I know it's not supposed to get terribly
    warm through the weekend. High 50's on the high side.

    The closest to now I can get is Sunday.

  • Posted in thread: Concord Grape Wine on 10-01-2009 at 09:57 PM
    Yeah, and I get to go pick more this weekend, the 100lbs was just what I could reach and was
    ripe. If the frost last night didn't destroy them, I can probably get another 50-100lbs. There
    were a lot o...

    I'm generally a beer brewer, haven't gotten into all grain yet. I got about 100lbs of grapes
    for free, so I had to do something with them... Half went to wine, and half went to jam and
    juice.
