Exponential Feeding A system of sugar additions to a must so that a high
alcohol content can be achieved. If all the sugar is added at the start of
fermentation, there is a great danger that the sugar will inhibit or even
kill the yeast. By adding small amounts of sugar each time the specific
gravity falls to 1-005, the yeast learns to tolerate alcohol
concentrations which normally would kill it. In this way, a slow, steady
ferment is encouraged. This aids quality by not causing the vaporization
of esters.

Cheers

Re: feeding
I was talking to my grandfather about my homebrewing exploits last
week and he mentioned that he used to make wine that way. "One bushel
of overripened concord grapes makes 10 gallons. When it stops working,
add a cup of sugar every evening until it stops working again. Bottle
and cork it."

Re: feeding
Tim thank you for you input but can you tell me what weight is a bushel.
I have information regarding to barley = 56 lbs, Oats = 39 lbs ,
Rye or Wheat  = 60 lbs, but not concord grapes.

Re: feeding
Look at the Peach Perfection recipe in any of C.J.J.Berry's books  It
describes the process quite well and in detail.
