    Got a problem here if someone could help please.


    Started this on the 29th of April, filled the bucket to just over the 1 gallon mark (about 5 Lts) problem is that after the primary stage had finished and everything had been strained through a muslin bag into a DJ, the amount that I am left with is about 1.5 Lts short from the top of the DJ

    All I can think is that the bulk in the bucket makes the level seem a lot higher then it actually is and the 5Lts in the bucket is more like 3Lts once you take the bulk of the ingredients out.

    If I top up the DJ with water won’t this make the finished wine a lot weaker or should I be toping up with a water / sugar syrup solution?

    The main lesson that I have learned from this is to ignore the marks on the side of the bucket and actually measure the amount of water that is going into the bucket, probably not so important when using smaller fruits (where the mass of the fruit wont effect the water level) but just the bulk of the rice in this recipe can make the level higher seem a lot higher then it actually is

    Anyone care to explain how?

    Coz I'm pretty sure it doesnt, the starch will stay in the rice......

    the wine is made solely from the raisins im fairly sure


    happy to learn otherwise though

    I would use sugar syrup, careful when adding though in case of foaming (you will get less using syrup than sugar alone, but you may stil get some)
