recommended that you NOT use screw cap bottles. Get the
crown cap finish. Look at your

bottles. They are 5 cents in NYS.

thicker than the newer bottles.
To Start winemaking, you'll
- Books, information.

empty one for racking.

test the sugar level BEFORE

additive. Recommended rate of 40 to 80 ppm, the lesser amount for red
as it has bleaching characteristics. This is added at
racking. It can also be used for cleaning and chasing chlorine rinses.

lots. One tablet is (rate varies) 30 to 120 ppm in 1 gallon.
Check the label
- +5-5 Hydrometer to check sugar at the end of fermentation. A

some sugar left and is not safe to bottle unless Sorbate (in combination
with Potassium Metabisulfite) is going to be used. See
Bottling Sweet Wine (Sorbate)
