Home Winemaking Installment #3

Wow, what a difference a week makes. Today, Jen and I went out again to test the Viognier and our results are reflecting ripening grapes.

Check out our new data:
⁰Brix = 22
pH = 3.33
TA = 12
Taste = I can say “yummy” this time around. Not nearly as tart.

The numbers are looking better, however, still not quite time to pick.

Enjoy a few pictures of the "testing" process:

Measuring Brix with the refractometer.

Checking out our pH.

Jen attempting to pull a sample.

Lindsey is titrating to determine the TA.

Measuring the TA - Struck out twice before realizing we forgot the coloring agent (Phenolphthalein).

Yes, we got it to turn pink!
