Hello All:

I am in my third week of winemaking - so a complete newbie. Never attempted to make wine, cider or beer before now. Decided to start off with fruit juice wine (the apple and red grape recipe) and I will progress from there once I gain confidence. I degassed the wine today and had a taster. It was not very sweet at all. I don't particularly want a sweet wine, but I would like something that is not so dry. I siphoned the wine into a clean demijohn.

What are the next steps in the process, please? When should I sweeten the wine? I wonder if the flavour will settle once it is bottled and left for a few weeks? I don't want to over sweeten. I would really appreciate your help - thank you.
