Gamay kit - looking good

Just pitched the yeast and it took off like a bat out of hell (virtually no lag time). Gravity of the wine was a little lower than I expected (at 1.090) so at the moment I am working with this batch at 5 gallons rather than the intended 6. Will check for flavors after active fermentation is done and if warranted will add additional water but everything looks good. And if the wine is great at 25 bottles, that would be preferable to being just OK at 30.

Dad drinks a bottle of wine a day.

My dad of 94-1/2 years old drinks a bottle of wine a day. I have been making the Gamay kits for him every 4 weeks to keep him supplied. We picked Gamay since it is the closest to making a Beaujolais. I have been keeping a bottle or two back from each batch to age, and so far they are still ageing since it has been less than a year. I did try a bottle from a batch I made for myself about 16 weeks ago and it improves with age, The day of bottling we drink the last partial bottle filled with dinner that night, and I have found the product very consistent. The Cabernet Sauvignon is a little smoother when young than the Gamay, but they are very similar. I stopped taking the s.g. at the beginning and end after the 4th kit I made. I follow the steps on the day it has to be done [dates are entered in my phone to remind me on the day I start] and after 4 weeks the bottles are washed and the wine is filled. I just use black stick on labels that use erasable marker, and I put on the name of the wine and the date bottled. I love these crafted series wine kits.
