Harvest Report 7

The Sangio is in, crushed, and sleeping peacefully in the cellar. We're going to let the grapes and juice settle overnight, then take some samples to the lab tomorrow. We want to get an official read on the sugar level, the acidity level and the pH. We also want to know how much nitrogen is in the juice. Since yeast use nitrogen as food (one cannot live on sugar alone; believe me, I've tried) we need to see if there is enough in the juice. If not, we'll add a little nutrient to the juice so the yeast will have a balanced meal to much on for the next few days.

Otherwise, the juice tastes great. This one will be fun!
