my batch tasted great but even though i put it in the right type of bottles etc the fizz had gone. why is this?
could be a number of reasons first one to check is the recpie/methoed used if you had left it to clear in demijohns it may of been left to long and the yeast could of died off meaning that the sugar used to prime the bottles was not fermented (this could also be caused by improper rinsing if a sterliseing solution had been used on the equiptmeny or bottles)

2 if the bottle lids were losened to relese excess pressure mabey it was done to often (never heard of this happening but i think it might of

3 almost the same as above but if the lids wernt creating a proper seal then the c02 could of leaked leaving you with flat wine
could you let us know what recpoie/methoed was used and i will see if anything could be done to rescue it

Just to say that the mix we started with grape juice and cider, finished in 12 days, and tastes pretty good already!

I'm going to try the yeast again very soon, although the test bottle is struggling at 1.2500
