I bought a bucket of Calf Reginia White Merlot juice today.
This is my 1st attempt of making a blush wine.
I am using Lavin 71B yeast.
Do I need to add tannin to blush wine and how much would you recommend for 5 gallons.

What makes a blush wine is usually the contact with the skins from the juice. If your juice isn't rose colored already I'm not sure that you can make a blush wine. I'm not certain though so don't base your decision off of this. As for tannin you shouldn't need to add any because the grapes usually have it on their own.

In case you don't know White Merlot is already a blush when you buy it. Nothing to do except add yeast after ut warms up. Its already balanced. I have made many wines and always added tannin to reds, but I not sure how to treat a blush wine. Blushes have no skins and minimal contact time so there is almost no tannins

Like I said I wasn't certain and don't base your decision off me.
