I'm making wine.

Sorbate doesn't kill the yeast, it just prevents it from multiplying. It won't stop it from fermenting to totally dry.

how do I stop fermentation?

How do we stop it?

I did try to stop it. The way I did it was to just add some potassium sorbate and stick it in the fridge.

The problem with this is sometimes the glass cracks. I'd like to...

maple syrup?

I'm sure this is the wrong topic to post this in. I just started my first real mead, but I noticed I have lots of maple syrup in the fridge. Does it work the same way as honey?

Yeah, turbo yeast expels a higher percentage of fusal alcohols. It also doesn't like to settle out, requiring filtering. That's too much work.

Anyway, I've recently found that I've been using a...

Wow!

Sorry for this, but I just have to because I'm very excited (and a little tipsy)!

Okay, I've only been making my own wine for about six months now, but this is amazing to me.

About three weeks...

I gave a good deal of thought to your post and decided to try something a little different. :)

Add 1 oz of raisins to the must. WOW! What a difference!

I read somewhere that you can add up to...

Kilju (Sugar Wine)

I've been trying to make sugar-wine (pure rocket fuel) to ferment to dry. So far it hasn't happened. I must have tried 4 batches so far, and to date, no joy.

I've been using 3 lbs. sugar with 1...

I like EC-1118 myself for this. It bubbles up a lot as first but it seems to finish fast with no bad flavor to my taste.

Yooper,

Do you stir the must every day during Primary fermentation?

I've tried it without stirring it every day but it seems to stall if I don't. It seems like the nutrient settles to the...

FWIW, I use 1/8 tspn yeast to begin a starter to pitch one gallon. I don't always use a starter, but it is the best way to do it. The rest of the dry yeast has to be stored under vacuum and...
