Carnation Anapa Winery, vol 2, day 19: Cabernet Sauvignon (cont’d)

My weight: 78.50 kg

Bucket #6:

  • 27 kg

I got so much grapes this year that it took me 4 days to finish the destemming and crushing. The very last batch got contaminated with some sort of fungus or mold. So I added the double dosage of Potassium Metabisulfite, that it 2 x ¼ tsp per 5 gallons of must. I’ll keep the bucket opened in garage for 24 hours before adding yeast. Which I don’t have anymore anyway.

Total amount of Cabernet Sauvignon I got this year is 74.15 kg (163.47 lbs). What has filled full three 5-gallon buckets.
