alright so i have a question. I started my batch of strawberry wine today at lunch and by 5:30pm it was already bubbling. is that going to be a problem? my last batch took about 24-30hrs to start bubbling. I dont know whether to be excited or worried about it haha

You're probally at a warm temp, which makes for very active yeast. Be careful, because very active yeast throw off more esters and phenols (aromas and flavors) which may, or may not enhance your wine.

I ferment in the mid to high 60's / low 70's for many of my wines. I think temp is different for many wines. Whites and fruits I like to do @ lower temps, and reds I do in the low 70's.

Good luck with your strawberry wine! :-)

No, I don't think you 'rushed it'. You hydrated your yeast and that's a very healthy pack of yeast you pitched apparently! It's good, not bad. :-)
