No bubbles in DJ1, measured SG , and it's 0.998. Still a bubble every 2 minutes or so in DJ2, SG = 0.994. (I know, this doesn't make sense)
Had a sip of the trial Jar, both are dry as a bone, and fizzier than pepsi so I ignored the instructions on gentle swirling, and racked , degassed properly, and THEN added the stabiliser and finings back in a clean DJ. The original DJ was manky off the froth erruption, so no way I'd want to clear in there as per the instructions.
I don't think this is going to be drinkable for a month or so @richytrue
, very harsh with the tang of new wine that I didn't get with the blackcherry
