Mull over some wine this fall!

Here is some information on how vintners do it...

As the quality of wine is easily influenced by temperature, wine makers use temperature control to slow down or accelerate the winemaking process or to control chemical changes in the wine. This technique is frequently used during fermentation, cold settling, aging, and storage.

During the primary fermentation, the yeast cells feed on the sugars in the must (the grape juice) and multiply and in the process produce carbon dioxide and alcohol. Due to the exothermic nature of fermentation, temperature increases as sugars are metabolized

Food shelf life is affected by temperature

Yum yum!

Have you ever wondered if that milk, yogurt, cheese or other perishable food really has gone bad or if it hasn’t, how long will it last? We have too, so we did some digging into food shelf life and how to prolong it. 

First we must know the different types of spoilage… there are 2 types of spoilage:
