Then my good man, I shall give that a crack.
Hi Andy, I used ---- " Vintners Harvest SN9 "
What yeast did you use mate?
Siphoning off the 2nd racking of 23 liters of mulberry wine and on to oak chips. The bouquet was good, definitely no wild yeast, and I didn't use any sterilizing agent. Will wait another 3 months and then bottle.
Yeah but I don't temp control the fermenter Jeff. It runs at room temp.
CL23 will ferment at low temperatures 8°C and the wild yeasts will probably not be viable at those temperatures
Note to self: big lesson for 2015 - Even boiling the life out of mulberries didn't help. I'll stick with Mulberry liquor which sounds very nice anyways. I think my CL23 is the wrong yeast for Mulberry wine. I like my CL23 Cumquat beer though, although it is probably an acquired taste (like most beer).
Thanks Craig. Apparently you can also soak them in steraliser but I'm not so keen on the sound of that. Cryovac seems like the better answer (and I have a machine already!).
Agreed Phil. It's not in my nature to tip it all out.
