cool prolly gonna get this yeast K1-V1116 Montpellier. A vigorous and competitive fermenter that, because of it's neutral effect on varietal character, is very well suited to fruit wines as well as wines to be made from grapes. Grapes and fresh fruit. 59-86į F (15-30į

and also one last thing all i have is beer bottles can i just bottle in those?


Edit: just read back and answered my own question

All else fails, make a dry batch and blend them.

Hey Yooper, love the recipe and want to try it soon. When you say top up or off, what are you using to do this? More grape juice or water? Hope all is well!

You can top up with water- that's built into the recipe. As long as you're only topping off to a gallon, you're all set.

I am making the Welch Grape Froze Concentrate...I want to make five gallons. So my question is (because I am New to this) is does 1 packet work for 1 gallon and gallons? Or do I need to add more yeast since I am bumping up the recipe in other ingredients ?

No, one package of yeast is good for up to 6 gallons of wine, so you're all set.

because I am starting out, I wanted to use the Hydrometer for this recipe. (now I wonder if that was a and/ confusing idea)

before yeast:

1.080 Specific Gravity
11 percent P. Alcohol
20 percent sugar

on the paper I have it says for Sweet wine it says "starting gravity" should e 1.140 ad up 2 pts

I do ot like dry wine so I added more sugar (ending up using 2 1/2 lbs more sugar and my reading for SP only went to 1.105


I am frustrated ad my gut says to stop adding sugar so I added the yeast packet.

I'm thinking maybe I will not get the hang of this and I haven't even begun doing acid tests <sigh>

thoughts?

Well, your paper is correct, in a way. If you add so much sugar that you overpower the yeast, you will have a sweet wine when it's finished. You'll have something like 18% abv, though, so it'll be sweet rocket fuel.

It's easiest to make the recipe as written, and wait for it to finish at a drinkable 12-13% or so. Then, stabilize using sorbate and campden tablets, and add sugar or honey or any other sweetener to taste.
