Leave it alone. One cause of turning brownish is oxidation. This can disappear as the yeast uses up the oxygen. Why you never stir rapidly or shake your wine once started. Too much oxygen. Another reason is, wine making needs meticulous sterilization to all vessels the wine will come in contact with. No three, wine such as grape wine needs some additives. One being an acid. That can be fixed with just adding a couple slices of lemon when mixing and heating. Another thing is, some grapes need tannin added to the mix. Using a mixture of grapes would make this probably a sure bet.Not sure...but from the youtube uploads I've seen...quite a few people use Welch's (or equivalent brands), which I think Ranch/Kemchick/Food Hall would have...although I opted for a cheaper version mixed in with my real grape juice.
Although at this point it seems that I messed it up since one bottle is turning brownish....
Thanks so much for the explanation! Yep...using a baker's yeast since I'm too impatient to buy (or look for) a wine yeast. I found one at tokopedia, but itching to start the experiment yesterday...
Sent you a photo through PM. Please let me know if it's even salvageable!
Thanks for the thumbs up guys!
FP: Would love to bring those stuff back...but wondering I'll get stopped at the customs and if I did what kind of story should I tell? Some stuff I think I can still get in Indonesia (Camden, Pectic, etc), although quite difficult..I have a family member's house in Singapore..so probably I can ship some stuff there, but still I need to figure out how to get them here. At the very least I'm hoping to get some oak extracts...that seems to be the hardest one to find here.
If a guy on tokopedia can bring in bulk items and repackage for retail then I don't think you would have any problems with a couple ounces of each product. Just make sure everything has labels since nothing could be a hazardous chemical. Put them in a box and label it for personal wine making. How many bags have you seen customs actually go through? I think you would be fine keeping it on the small scale.
