    Grape must additions

    Looking to condition a wild ale on some grape must. This will be the first time using must. Any guidelines/recommendations on how much per barrel? Working on an 8 bbl batch. Thanks.

    I've used grape must in a barrel aged brett saison before. I added 40lbs to each 60ish gallon oak chardonnay barrel after primary on stainless. we aged it on oak for around 9 months after the end of the secondary fermentation of the grape sugars (about 2 weeks). it turned out really nice imho. if I do it again I would up to around 60lbs/ oak barrel. (if you are going to do it, do it with balls.)

    I was thinking 0.5-1#/gallon so that makes sense. Thanks!
