I am going to try making a sweet wine and I was wondering what would be a generally gravity for a wine AFTER it has been back sweetened. Nothing dry but it can't be as sweet as desert wine, right in the middle sweetness I'd say. I'm trying to figure out how much sugar I will roughly need to add without testing tons of samples. Thanks

Try starting with 1.010. and see if that is where you want it. That's what I go for with my off dry/semi whites.
