Pitching the yeast

It has been 24 hours since we sulfited the must.  It is time to add the yeast.  Bring a small bowl of tap water to 104 degrees.  Then add the GoFerm (or similiar yeast rehydrate nutrient) into the bowl, along with the yeast.  Stir lightly in the bowl and it should bubble and rise just a bit.  After 20 minutes add the yeast mixture to your must and stir in. 

IMPORTANT:

It is now time to add Fermaid K.  This is an additional nutrient that feeds the yeast.  This is done now at innoculation, and then when your brix reaches 1/3 or 1/2 depletion.
