Hello...I am thinking about ordering the Alexanders Muscat juice concentrate to make a batch of Moscato wine. I read a forum where after making the wine, the guy carbonated it to turn it from Moscato to Moscato D'Asti which is really what im looking for. However, I have only make wine from Winexpert kits which have included step by step instructions. I am not sure when to add the necessary chemicals or what I will need. Anyone have a good recipe to follow? Any help would be great!

Thanks

I do not know if this would interest you Selection Millennium Sparkling Wine kit , http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sourc..._8x0O5UMOb3w0A , but you could likely use the instructions as a guideline as you make your sparkling Moscato. Also, WE recently released a Moscato kit.

Thanks

Actually, if you have kept the instructions from your winexpert kit, they make a great guid for doing a non-kit wine.

Yes, it is called World Vineyard California Moscato, and you should be able to find it at your favorite WE source. It was just released in March.

Ok so I bought the Moscato WE kit. I have read some articles that say that you may want to spike the sugar content before force carbonating. Will I still want to do this using the WE kit? The kit also says to wait a month before drinking so do I want to age the wine in the carboy for a month and then force carbonate or should I force carbonate then age a month? Thanks!

I would reccomend making the kit 'as is' the first time around. That way you have a basis for comparison when you tweek the next one.

Also, I would age it, then carb. :-)
