Andy’s How to Make Wine Videos – Step 3 – Stabilizing

Here’s Step 3 of my How to Make Wine Video series! In this third video I explain how to check the specific gravity of your wine with a hydrometer to assure complete fermentation. I add potassium metabisulfate and potassium sorbate to the carboy and stir vigorously. These ingredients will help sterilize and protect against re-fermentation after bottling. A natural fining agent is also added to settle the must.

Enjoy, leave comments, and don’t forget to share with your friends. :)
