Plum wine #2: Starter & Pitching….

The yeast starter is doing well!  To a gallon jar:

  • 1 cup water boiled and cooled to 100 degrees
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 pinches yeast nutrient

Mix well until fully disolved, then sprinkle yeast on top of mixture.  Cover jar with a paper towel and a rubber band.  Set timer for two hours.

  • Feed the yeast 1/2 cup warm water (95-100)
  • Feed 1/2 tsp of sugar
  • Feed 2 pinches of yeast nutrient

Wait another 2 hours, then repeat.  I will be doing this until 10:00 PM tonight when I will pitch into the must.
