This morning I had to add the yeast to the bucket of "must" that I made yesterday. After getting those helpful comments from Misty yesterday, I knew to start the yeast in warm water. I also read the back of the yeast packet and it said to just pour it in the water and leave it for 15 minutes, then I could stir it in. So that is what I did.
Here is the yeast that I used.
This is not the wine yeast that the recipe called for but when I bought this yeast a month or so ago, I didn't even know there were different kinds of wine yeasts so this is the one that will get used for the wine this time and maybe later I will branch out and buy a few different kinds of wine yeast and make even better wine!
Here is the yeast in the bowl (which I did sterilize with boiling water. I don't know if that is necessary but I did it just in case) waiting the 15 minutes. It smelled just like any bread yeast.
blog and website to be extremely helpful. I am still reading at both but I am learning a lot from him.
