I started a batch of wine 12 days ago (Welch’s Grape juice frozen concentrate)
22 cans Welch’s Grape juice frozen concentrate
*5 gallons water
*3 tsp acid blend
*1 tsp pectic enzyme
*5 tsp yeast nutrient
*5 tablets sodium bisulfate
*4 cups sugar
*1 pack of montrachet yeast
I started with a SG of 1.100 (NOT airlocked)
Racked after 10 days and the SG was 1.000(I would stir it every day) It is now airlocked.
I tried a few sips of it before racking and it tasted very sour. Its kind of hard to describe the taste other than sour/bitter. But it did not taste good.
I was wondering if this has happened to anyone before and what might have happened?
I cleaned and sanitize everything before and after every use, so it should not be a sanitary issue. So I am not quite sure what went wrong. The fermenting looked healthy and I kept the temperature between 64 and 75 while it was in the primary as well.
I hate to dump out yet another batch of wine.
