I was given a box of cherry fruit packs. What else to do, but make wine? After emptying them into my five gallon carboy (the bucket had the Hefeweizen in it), I had about three gallons of cherries and syrup. So I topped it off to five gallons with water and added five pounds of sugar for a little extra strength. This time we used dry yeast for white wine. In primary on 2/28/09.
Racked to secondary bucket on 3/8/09, since it started in the carboy and I was making it simultaneously with the Hefeweizen. I need to get another bucket or so to make it easier to brew more at once.
Bottled on 3/21/09. Still smells sweet.
