Cherry Wine part 3

Brew Day plus 15

With all fermentation activity finished we take a reading with our hydrometer and it comes out at 0.998 a fairy dry finish and on tasting we are not tasting much more than alcohol with a little bit of plum in it.

We need to bulk age it so will leave it alone for about 4 weeks.

Brew Day plus 35

After a month of bulk aging the taste just isn't quite were we wont it to be, slightly harsh still. Carbonation should lift the taste just enough so its into a keg for a little bit of forced carbing.
