My pee is beige too, but I think that I'll try to use the Amarone with two bottles to taste it. Seems so interesting.

dmcl....I wanted to chime in and say that I have yet to use a fining agent in any batch I have made and it is always clear in less than 60 days, regardless if I had added pulp or fresh fruit into the recipe.
Finings have no relation to sorbate/k-meta, so you have no worries about one being dependent on the other. You will not want this dry, at least I do not know anyone who likes this dry... so you will have to ferment as low as it will go, allow to clear, rack off sediment, backsweeten with an unfermentable like stevia or sucralose and stabilize with k-meta, prime with a fermentable and bottle appropriately.

So I've tried a few bottles of SP and they are not carbonated at all after almost a month. Is it possible that the yeast was dead? I used dextrose at the normal amount (3/4 cup to 5 gallons) for bottling. Can this be fixed or should I just dump all those bottles into a keg? I hate to drink unfermented dextrose if there's an option.

Some blueberry skeeter pee I just racked to secondary:



I'm hoping it clear up to a nice transparent purple.

looks really good. I might need to try a blueberry SP in the future.

Am down to my last two quarts of Pee and finally got one of my "wine-er" friends to get me some must. I have it sitting in the fridge right now. Hopefully when things slow down,
I'll be able to start batch three and my second with red...

I am in the middle of my first batch of SP & had a question about fermentation activity. How aggressive should the fermentation rate be? It is working, but at the same rate as an apfelwein. Too slow? About right? The SG at 1.06 this morning. I have whipped it a couple of times, which seems to have helped some. Just wondering what others are seeing.
