I just transfered to the secondary, it went from 1.083 to 0.998 in 9 days fermenting at 65. So
far, so good!

Fantastically reply, airving. I've only recently ventured into wine but have been doing all

in the low 60...

I am making WE Chilean chardonnay kit. The yeast supplied is red star premier cuvee. The

I made a batch of Edwort's hefe back in July, but the LBHS only had WLP380. Turned out
fantastic. Anyway, I harvested yeast from that batch into two mason jars following the yeast

This recipe has turned out to be a fantastic one. My wife's mom even loves it and she is NOT a
beer drinker. I did get some real bubblegum esters, which is weird, but not off putting at all.
