Bowle wine
(approx. 20 litre)
dry
medium
light sweet
chaptalise with 400 grammes sugar
chaptalise with 500 grammes sugar
chaptalise with 600 grammes sugar
Even better than sugar, is to add Liqueur Base,
3 ml equals 1 hydrometer degree in 1 litre of wine.
Grape juice is excellent for adding sweetness and

imparts a more fruity flavour.

3 ml of grape juice adds 1 hydrometer degree in

1 litre of wine.

Example: 20 litres of red wine is to be corrected from
990 degrees to 1000.

10 hydrometer degrees x 3 ml grape juice x 20 litres = 600 ml.

1 kilogram of grape juice is approx. 750 ml.
