Orchard Brewzin' Peach Wine Kit - Won at the ABL Raffle

4/25/2023 - Brew Day - Followed directions on wine kit for the most part, but I decided to sub out the champagne yeast for some CY17 I had that would be better suited for a fruit wine. I will make a note to aerate the wine once or twice a day for the first few days.
- Aerated twice a day until 4/29, at which time I put the lid on, filled the arilock, and will let it sit until it's time to transfer

5/30/2023 - Transferred to secondary - Added clarifying & stabilization packs from the kit and racked on top. Degassed a bit before putting on airlock. Crystal clear and the flavor had a subtle fruity peach note with a nice acidic bite.

6/15/2023 - Transferred to another fermenter just to get everything clear before kegging & bottling. This wine is CLEAR!!! I also topped up with about 2-3 quarts of water since the volume was a bit low. This will lower the ABV as well.

6/23/2023 - Kegged - Backsweetened with the provided peach extract bag. I also added 1TB potassium sorbate and 1/4 tsp k-meta. I decided to keg the whole batch, since the ABV is pretty low. I can always bottle from the tap once I get it cold and carbed.
