    I’m not positive. Thanks for watching!

  4. Hi Jessika, Part three was unfortunately destroyed in a computer data
    disaster. I’m going to be putting together a replacement sometime soon.
    Thanks for watching!

  5. @will3482 Hi thanks for your comment. There is already plenty of juice
    present. The pectin draws out even more of the juice as it sits, then the
    berries are squeezed after primary fermentation. This helps ensure some of
    the juice makes it to the secondary, which helps with the flavor. Also, the
    recipe is formulated this way: its important to use the same process thats
    in the recipe, otherwise you might end up a bit low on the sugar, and
    flavor.

  6. Well that’s how they typically make grape wine. I’m not sure what the
    reasoning is behind drawing them out first with fresh fruits, but you do
    end up usually squeezing the berries after they have soaked a bit. I’m
    mostly following the recipe on that, so I’ll give a look in Mary’s recipes
    and see if there’s any reasoning behind doing it that way.

  8. Interesting fact: You state that you’re “old fashioned” so you don’t use
    softened water. Fact is, you’re spot on with that decision. Softened water
    often lacks the oxygen, minerals, and other nutrients that are required for
    healthy yeast. They will ferment, but when they are kept healthy and happy,
    they struggle less, and that means they release less phenols and other
    agents that can leave off flavors in your wine. :) (…and no, the
    nutrients you provide don’t give everything needed).

  10. True. But you can cut out all the long parts while adding ingredients. A 1
    – 2 min video would have better audience.

  12. Hi Jevchance, Good videos! Sorry ’bout the mishap with the data for the
    third video. I was wondering if it might be easier to just crush the
    berries, add them and the juice to the fermentation vessel freely, without
    the straining bag, so that all the enzymes and sugar and yeast can blend
    more completely? It’d be much easier to stir as well. Then strain the whole
    thing after fermenting. I was wondering if others do it that way?

  13. Yeah I just went back to my first video and realized that I had to put it
    in the comments because I was nervous and forgot the name of it while
    filming :) Thanks for watching

  16. Sorry but the data from the third video was lost in a computer crash
    unfortunately. I tried to go back and get the source footage (I was on
    MiniDV tapes back then) and the tape was recorded over. :( I’m going to do
    a third video, finishing off this series with a wine kit that I’ve been
    sitting on (not yet fruit season) so stay tuned, and sorry to keep y’all
    waiting!

  18. good video but could be a lot more detailed in what everything is doing
    like the pectin ect just to explain why and full explanation on the whole
    step by step production. I know its only youtube but Im gonna do this soon
    and I know from friends there are things you need to be on the ball about
    for it to work out well.

  20. Why are you not crushing the berries? From what I have learned you need to
    crush the fruit then add to your fermenter then your campden tablets and
    sugar etc. Then let it sit for a week THEN strain it through the bag, not
    let it set in the bag, how are you supposed to get the juice out this way?
    I’m confused.
