Good for white wines
I add one 4oz. bottle to a 6 gallon batch of white to add a touch of body and a little sweetness. I think more than that would start to make the wine a bit too thick for me, but that is just my opinion.

Works as promised
It does indeed smooth and mellow the wine, it made a noticeable improvement._x000D_I used just 4 ounces because I didn't want to add a lot of sweetness. I didn't really notice any change in body._x000D_

Very good product
I have used this product A LOT over the years and it has improved my end product each time. The only issue I have is the gallon size is a nightmare to pour without making a mess & wasting product. It is a flexible plastic bag with the spout in a very poor position - needs a pouring spout like a gas can. I went the cost effective avenue with the gallon but I'm not sure I saved much in the end. My rating is on the product alone NOT the packaging (which would get a 1).

Worked as stated, improved kegged sparkling wine
After scouring tips online, I purchased two of these to add to a batch of Moscato that tended to be a bit dry. I wanted to increase the sweetness and body, especially since I was force carbonating the wine to have "frizanti" on tap. The sparkeling co2 makes the wine taste a bit drier, so using a conditioner can help wines where more body is preferred. The glycerin worked well and the resulting wine have a nice body, was still sweet, and was a big hit among friends. I would be hessitant to add it all the time, but for applications where I knew the wine was too dry or I was going to force carb again, I would definitely recommend it. I used 2 bottles for a 5.5 gallon batch and at $2.75, thought it was a bit high, but I have no real comparison. Overall, its a good, fairly cheap way to modify a wine that you know might be too dry.

works well
The glycerin definitely adds a sweetness quickly. I didn't notice a change on the mouth feel very quickly. Tried adding to a flavored whiskey additive and it got sweet pretty fast, use caution if you don't like things very sweet.

Many uses
Have used this for freezing yeast, sweetening a strawberry wine that got too dry, and even tried with liqours. A great product, works well.

sweetens and adds body
I just used a bottle on my Blackberry wine, where I had a lot of Blackberry puree and the harshness was a little strong. I think 2 ounces per gallon would be too much. I use the entire 4 ounces in a 6 gallon batch, to add a noticeable but not overwhelming amount of body and sweetness. Liqueurs are already sweet so I can't imagine adding Glycerin to a liqueur._x000D_

Really does what it says
I use this to improve the body of my dry white wines. I use one bottle so it wont impact the flavor or add much sweetness. If adding this to a sweeter white wine I'd be cautious , so that you don't over do it.

Adds mouth feel and sweetness
Some of my white wines end up too dry and 4 ounces will add a little sweetness and mouth feel, improving the wine overall.

helps my white wines
It can add a lot of sweetness so I dont add it all at once. Start with half the bottle and go on from there. It also thickens the body a little

Do I need to stabilize my wine after adding glycerin?
Wendel H on Nov 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sources say - Also known as glycerol, glycerin is a carbohydrate (sugar) that is not a substantial food source for most wine yeast strains, though it can be consumed by some lactic acid and acetic acid bacteria. Used as a finishing formula, to add body and mellow wine and liqueurs. Used at a rate of 1oz - 2oz per gallon. Rarely is it used to add sweetness.
What is the shelf life of Glycerin. I have an Old bottle.
Don't know if I should use it?
ron9632 on Dec 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Ron,

Thank you for choosing Midwest Supplies! I did some digging, and that glycerine should last 2-3 years. I hope that this helps!
Can I use a over the counter Glycerin in my wine?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I do use the Glycerin in my wine on occasion. I'm more prone to use sugar syrup. I mix two parts cane sugar to one water, heat & stir until dissolved, let cool then add to your wine to sweeten. it works just as well if not better. typically two fluid oz. of the syrup will raise the SG 2 points. Ex. from .998 to 1.0
