    Stalled ferment in the primary

    I mixed up a gallon batch of raspberry must two days ago, measured SG yesterday (very low 1.075, had only added 0.5lbs of sugar), added more sugar to bring it to 2lbs (per a better recipe) though it didn’t change the SG. Pitched the yeast anyways. doesn’t seem like there’s much action going on...

    Keeping things sanitary when storing/squeezing

    About to begin my first batches of gallon fruit wines and from everything I’ve read I should be squeezing lightly the bag of must. Is it good enough to just wash my hands before or should I “sanitize” as well?
