I am fairly new to the craft of winemaking, so far I've only produced a gallon
of strawberry (which was succesful!) but I have been trying to make some
Recipe said,soak flowers, orange, lemon and some cold tea in boiling water,
after a couple of days strain into a pan add sugar and boil, when cool put
into fermentation bin add yeast etc, ..... it didn't ferment amazingly well
After about a week transfer to demijohn feed daily with sugar to dryness,
somewhere here it stopped fermenting, I have tried adding 3mg of Vit B, i've
added fresh stater of yeast, I have even racked into a fresh demijohn and
added fresh yeast, which I made sure was going really well but as soon as it
gets there it stops.
It seems to do better with heat and shaking, but this could just be stuff
coming out of solution, it has also had some camden tablets added at some
The yeast I am using is just a general purpose one, do I need a "Super
Yeast??". The "wine" tastes pretty sweet and yucky and is also very cloudy.
Thanks in advance, Sarah.
