Good Product, added Honey and Oak in Fermenting. Semi Dry. Very Clear
I am growing my own grapes and decided that experimenting with a kit with the ingredients I need would be a great tutorial. I am almost done with the secondary fermentation phase and so far have not made too many mistakes. I have been able to analyze my processes and make changes to my equipment in the process. As soon as I bottle this batch I am doing a Merlot. When I had a question about fermenting temperatures I got a timely and thoughtful response- greatly appreciated. I look forward to other experiments- first the Merlot I already have then perhaps a Pinot Noir. Great product, excellent service, and an first/rate experience.
Haven't tasted the final results yet as it is still clearing, so I could only give 4 stars. A taste test half way through seemed to taste pretty good, but time will tell. Fermentation went well and color is looking very good. I would buy this again
Just started it yesterday late morning. Smells good. Easy start. Recorded SG at 1.090 at 72 degrees F. Put the heating pad on (my Cellar is chilly) to keep it at 70ish. The yeast (Prise de mousse- Lalvin EC-1118) started up later that evening while we were out. So far great.
This Riesling is perfect - not to sweet not too dry.
