No seems to be sweet enough
I agree, i put the warning above in my first post in the thread, i cannot imagine how sweet it would be with with the extra sugar.
Thanks for the review chippy. Iv not done a wine in a long while. I'll be doing this one very soon. If you didn't want it dry and a little sweetness do you think 300g would be enough considering what you said about the 750 would have made it sickly sweet if added??????
I wouldn't describe it as dry even without the extra sugar, if you do you can always add a little bit of sugar to the bottle and give it a good shake just before drinking it.
1090 OG is scary. Mine was 1.094.
If you don't want it so strong add some water to bring it down to your level.
That would be around 13% ABV which is fairly standard for a kit.
Chippy my wine is sat in the FV and today is day 8 so according to the instructions this should be ready to degas and add the A and B sachets yesterday however my airlock is showing signs of fermentation but only a buble every once and a while. Do you think this is just C02 and not a sign of fermentation C02
My last one took 10 days I never take kit instruction times seriously they are always optimistic, do you have a hydrometer?
Yeh ill take a reading later. What would you reckon a safe reading will be to start adding a and b?
If I remember right the instructions said .995 or below.
Maybe I should bloody look at the instructions ha ha
I am glad to see my memory is still working after all these years. :lol:
Either way I might try the kit sometime
Well I'm bottling tomorrow and 2 taster glasses tonight I'm quite happy. As you have said its quite fresh at the beginning and does need some bottle conditioning.
I can definitely say I can feel these 2 glasses though ha ha
If you like that give a Red Grape juice and apple juice wine a try - http://www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=49462
Interesting read through this until I did a store finder search and realised that there is not a Range within a 'million' miles of me!
Got a WOW forum favourite Rose bubbling nicely though so hoping this will be a good match.
Edit - home delivery available :thumb:
To be honest Ithink a supermarket juice wine made from one litre of RGJ and an Apple juice topped up with apple juice after racking is better then the Range rose.
Excellent. On your say so then will just get some more apple juice for topping up. Going great guns at a bubble every 2 seconds at the mo .
