This is a bucket of easy clean. It helps to make sure there is no contamination on anything used.
We pitched the yeast on our second kit here.
It's a Sangiovese red wine and the grapes were grown in Italy.
There's yeast, clay and wood chips.
That's a hydrometer and it's used to measure the alcohol content.
This was our first kit, a big red. It's very big and apparently, needs a year to be properly aged. We moved it into a glass carboy for clarification.
In two weeks, we'll move it again into another carboy with no more wood chips. It will stay in there for at least 28 days before bottling. Next up, I'll be making hard cider. I tried to buy the cider at Whole Foods but they didn't have it yet. I have plans to pour it in November so I must get it started tomorrow. The pressure is on!
