Drizzle today, again – but no matter, I had enough to keep me busy.
First I racked the redcurrant wine – the fermentation has slowed right down, & it has starting to clear. It’s measuring an SG of 990 – but it tastes a bit sharp, so I gently added another ounce of sugar.
It’ll probably ferment just a bit more, fed by the added sugar, but at that SG, not very much, & the left over sugar will sweeten the wine.
Then I picked out the white potatoes for the show – I couldn’t make my mind up between the wilja or the larger lady cristl, so I picked 5 of each & washed & wrapped them along with the selected garlic bulbs & the coloured potatoes which I picked out yesterday.
They all look equally quite good, so I’ll have to take a second opinion nearer the weekend…
