Re: 25li Bulk LME

“Edit to OP...the jerry can weighed 25kg and not 25li as originally posted.”

Re: Fruit Wine Q

Personally I would use them as they are. Just a suggestion, elderberry are nearly ready to pick, and if you added 250g to your blackberrys, it would improve the final wine a lot.

How did you measure the pH?
With papers or by titration?

Re: Correct hop filter height

Ive got a blue mango chutney barrel which im making into a boiler.
Because the bottom four inches curves a lot, i have to put the tap
above this or the tap wiil be pointing upwards inside.
Can I tip my barrel to get the last six litres out?

Re: bramble and elderberry wine

Hi Stoofer.
Your sugar alone will make a wine of over 15%.
