11/14/2012 -- I have three carboys of peach wine in secondary fermentation, I wish to sweeten it. I purchased a bottle of your Wine Conditioner but the label does not tell me how much to use per gallon of wine. please advise
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I wish I could give you a specific amount, but the degree of wine sweetness is very much a personal thing. Some like just a little, some can't get enough.To overcome this there are (at least) 3 solutions:1) Wait until you are ready to bottle (after secondary fermentation and clearing) then siphon into another vessel. You can sweeten . . .
8/22/2011 -- I'm working on a hard cider. It's been in the primary for about a week now and I took a hydrometer reading/gave it a taste and it's a bit tart. Is there anything I can do to sweeten it up? The OG was a 1.058, it's currentlly at a 1.004. I added 2 lbs Light DME while making it. Any suggestions? Thank you!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Adding sweetness to a cider is always a bit of a trick.If you are kegging your cider, it's easy. Simply sweeten it up to taste using Wine Conditioner, carbonate, refrigerate and enjoy.It's when you are bottling your cider, you want some sparkle, AND some sweetness that is tricky. Of course adding more sugar to the cider causes it to . . .
7/4/2010 -- I live in SC and have been experimenting with scuppernong & muscadine grapes, and blending these with other fruits. I've always been told to use Montrachet yeast, but since I want sweet wines, it seems like Cote des Blancs might be better. I can't find any references to scuppernong wine on your site, so do you have any experience of how this . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Cote de Blancs would be a good choice for leaving some residual sweetness. There has to BE some sugar in the juice in the first place, however, and muscadine-like grapes are quite sour. I would add sufficient sugar to get a potential alcohol level of about 16% before fermentation. The Cote de Blanc should turn off before that. If not, try . . .
