      Brix 19.7
      PH 3.46
      TA 5.8
      YAN 56
      Adding tartaric to getTA 7 and lower pH
      YAN low so adding nutrients at startup

      I let it sit on the skins for 48 hours before pressing – lots of colour. After pressing I settled the must for another 48 hours before racking off the clear upper layer. The sludge was put in the fridge for later extraction of juice. Will use this to increase the overall Brix of the fermentation. My numbers on the clear juice:
      Brix 19.2
      pH 3.61
      TA 6.2 g/L
      YAN 50 mg N/L
      Will be adjusting similar to Don, probably target a TA of 7.2
