over 2 years agoBest way to sweetenHave used sugar in my recipes but after I used a kit or two they recommended this if I wanted it less dry and it is so much easier to use with a kit especially.April 1, 2017Purchased
over 3 years agoVery good productI 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).November 16, 2016fast shippingYou had what I needed and shipped it fast. Thank you. Ron.January 8, 2016Adds sweetness and viscosityI like to make wine with low cost ingredients and sometimes they come out too dry. I can doctor them up with this and it doesn't affect the flavor.March 4, 2014For overly dry winesOccasionally a wine comes out too dry and thin and I add a little of this to bring it up to an acceptable level. I'd say three to four ounces is about the right amount to use.January 16, 2014Worked on a white wineThe first white wine I made was too dry and thin. I added 4 ounces to perk it up and it was much improved.December 12, 2013helps out some dry whitesIt helps improve the body of some dry white wines. It will add sweetness if you add too much so I agree with using just 4 ounces.November 15, 2013helps my white winesIt 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 littleAugust 31, 2013

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 5 answersCan I use a over the counter Glycerin in my wine?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 1.0Do I need to stabilize my wine after adding glycerin?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.

Don't know if I should use it?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!
