    Here's some more information on that batch!So I was most certainly at an OG 1.147 and not
    1.047. Here's the date and the gravity it gave me:2017-01-13 - 1.1002017-01-15 -

    My thoughts exactly! It's quite impossible to be so low with so much sugar.It's been fermenting
    quite well, lots of bubble. I just checked the gravity, it gave me 1.100! That's quite better.
    I wonder ...

    Hi all!I'm doing a new test, a 5 gallon bucket of red wine with the main ingredient being
    Welch's frozen grape juice. This should be interesting! But the problem is that my OG is 1.047,
    this will prob...

    Hi, just to let you know I'm still working on this problem. I made a batch recently that was
    quite good. I degassed it a lot and there was oak in it. Unfortunately, this batch wasn't for
    me so I can't...

    @Mismost: ok, so one thing I can try is just to wait. This is quite easy to test, I'll just
    need to wait and taste my wine after overtime and see if it improves.@gregbathurst: another
    thing to try is ...

    Interesting but this is just regular red wine. There has to be an easy trick to do it faster
    than just waiting 6 months!

    Are you giving it some time to mellow out? Some hot alcohol flavors fade with time and leave a
    delicious wine.Mellow out in the bottle with the caps? Yes, some for months, taste doesn't
    change much.I ...

    This is something I've already tried, leaving the oak chips out of it. I've stopped putting
    them a few months ago. It do helps but just a bit. I'd like it to be even less
    astringent.Sweetening could b...

    Hi,Been making homemade wine with a regular starter kit for quite some years: an ok wine but
    recently I've tasted another wine from the market and it doesn't make me grin like the wine I
    make.I think...

  • Posted in thread: Make wine in bucket without glass carboy? on 11-11-2009 at 11:12 PM
    Hi, been doing wine for a few years now, never had problem, but now my glass carboy that I use
    for secondary fermentation starts to have little crack in it and I find them extremely
    difficult to clean...
