Not a brewer but I tried making wine many years ago, 70's I think. Didn't know what a dry wine was and about using sugar or other in wine making so didn't have any in it. I found out what dry wine is, gad I needed a drink of water to wet my mouth again after one taste. Got rid of the bottle, fermentation lock and hygrometer. Not a wine drinker to this day though I use it in cooking.
