merlot & cab sauv juice and pasteur red & bordeaux yeast

Post by Dr. Richard E. Hawki » Fri, 24 Sep 2004 00:45:12



Sitting outside my door are 6 gallon buckets of cab sauv and merlot
juice.

In my refridgerator are packets of Pasteur Red and Bordeaux liquid
yeast.

But I can't remember which is for which.  I want to say that the
Bordeaux is for the Merlot.  Does this sound right?

Also, should I be hitting the juice with anything before  the yeast?

thanks

They started fermenting on their own!

I hit the reisling with the yeast I'd already started for it last night,
and popped the other two packs.

This morning I cut them open and took them out, giving the pasteur red
to the cab sav--and then discovered a ring on the handle of the third
said "chardonay" instead.

That bucket whent in the refridgeratror, and the bordeuax yeast in a
bottle with an airlock for the moment.
