In this episode I take questions submitted from listeners and give my best advice. Winemaking is like cooking in that there is rarely a discreet best answer, so each response is to be taken with a grain of salt. There's more than one way to ferment a grape. When appropriate I explain how you might scale up or down given the size of winery involved. Questions in this episode about how to make wine cover: the use of SO2, winemaking in Texas, nutritional strategies for native fermentation management, red-wine color extraction, the myths and realities of decanting wines, how dry yeast can ferment a must, can vs. spur pruning, how to run a safe extended maceration on a small scale, predicting wine flavors from grape flavor, and the difference between cold settling and cold stabilization after an addition of Potassium Carbonate.
