"Make it up" etc..........

This morning, I had a quick check of the "make it up as you go along Summer Fruits" melomel (because I upped the sugar levels with honey).

It was at a healthy 1020, I wasn't sure what to do next as it was about 7 litres i.e. did I rack it into a 1 gallon demi-john jar and a 1/2 gallon demi-john jar or what ?

So I decided, to get some red grape juice from the local supermarket, topped it up to 9 litres, added and mixed in 1/8th teaspoon of Fermaid-K nutrient and then split it into 2 x 1 gallon demi-johns. I've since covered the demi-johns with kitchen foil to exclude light as I wouldn't want the batches getting "light bleached".

Now it's time to wait. Yum yum!
