I just made a 5 gallon "Welch's Grape Juice Wine" and added used grape skins from my Classic Winery Series Cab I just racked. From one to another. That plus a full dose of proofed Lalvin 71B-1122 and I have air bubbles 30 minutes later in the airlock! LOL.

Probably wasted a package of yeast. Dumped in one hel good starter. The yeast that is fermenting is whatever was in the Cabernet skins
