Does anyone happen to know what the SG is of vine rippened (those which are mature, and have dropped to the ground) muscadines and/or scuppernongs?

Just the juice itself...before it has been diluted with water and/or boosted with sugar, or anything else!

You can probably wait until you rack it, unless you think it really needs it now. I usually add one campden tablet per gallon at the making of the must, and then at every other racking. I don't have an SO2 meter, so that's my "guestimation" of trying to keep the wine at approx 50 ppm.

i'd like to know how your recipe turns out... although it looks like it's gonna be a while... some friends of my parents own old south winery in natchez mississippi and muscidine wine is there specialty. i'll see if i can get more info for u.


this bottles been aging for about 6 years so far... i'm shooting for 10.
its really the only kind of wine i will drink.. kindof an acquired taste for most tho
