I've used 71B-1122 and EC-1118 for my batches before. Both turned out great but the EC-1118 will push alcohol higher if it has the sugar to do so.

I can't comment on Rhubarb because I haven't made anything with it before. If you are going for cheap I'd say concentrate. I would try a port, but that could just be because I've been wanting to...

I've never seen it in grocery stores. I have seen it in my LHBS but it is not sold in a small amount and it isn't cheap either.

You should be fine. It would take longer than that to get any off flavors from the lees.

What yeast did you use?

Did you take a hydrometer reading before and 17 hours after? Also did you start it in a carboy or a food grade pail?

Regarding your question on how jalapenos age I would guess if you added 1/8 tsp of tannin it would help it age better.

I may have to try this wine for myself soon.

Do you stir it everyday? When it's in the primary I stir it to punch the cap that forms and to introduce oxygen for the yeast. I avoid putting an airlock on until it's in the secondary.

I would have left it in a primary for a few days and stirred twice a day to let the yeast get the oxygen they need at first.

Put it into a secondary after 4-7 days. Once it is in the secondary rack after 60days. And then you can determine how long you want to leave it in the carboy after that.

You would want to multiply everything by 5. The only thing you don't have to is the yeast. One packet will work for the 5 gallons.

I'm doing this same recipe right now. I'm transferring it into a carboy tonight and that's when I'm going to add my raisins. Hopefully it will turn out good for the both of us.
