    Making Canada’s Best Pinot Gris – Day 6

    Oct 10, 2014


    Today was a little less crazy.  Racked some more wine into tanks, pitched more yeast and did a pile of cleanup.  Have to get everything ready for picking Pinot Noir tomorrow.

    Now that all our tanks are fermenting away happily, I just have to check them daily to make sure nothing crazy is happening… i.e. foaming over, getting too hot, smelling funky…

    So I have 5 tanks bubbling away happily with 3 different yeasts.  Will  be interesting to see how these all develop.  Then in a week or 10 days when fermentation stops I can rack the wine off the yeast and start the process of stabilizing the wine.
