Crush time...

Postby Bruce53 » Thu Sep 22, 2011 12:40 pm

I count eight things I should, or could, add at or about crush time for merlot. I read that some should come before others with some lag time involved for some. If I DID use them all, what would be their order of entry and lag time if any? Acid fix (if out of limits, cc or tt); enzyme; dap; wine yeast; yeast food; meta; tannin; inactivated yeast...
Obviously I am a real novice. Many thanks guys....

Do acid test first and adjust if necessary. Then check sugar and adjust if necessary.

Then, add pectic, nutrient, sulfite. Wait 24 hrs and then add yeast.

thanks
