i have to admit though, i deviated in a few ways:
1) instead of two yeast cakes, i used a packet of safale us-05
2) instead of a quart of dark malt, i used 3.33 cups of dark DME
3) instead of .5 tsp priming sugar in each bottle, i primed the whole thing with 224g dark DME. i fear that i didnt end up with a full 5 gallons after leaving the trub behind so hopefully i didnt overcarbonate it too badly. each bottle is a tad underfilled, but i still made 50 bottles

That's awesome! I have some OLD OLD family dandelion and elderberry wine recipes from my great great great grandfather but that is about it. I don't think anyone has made the wine since he did back in the God knows when. I found the recipes in an old leather folder when cleaning out my great grandfathers barn after he passed. Going to give them a shot this summer.

Wow, That looks a heck of a lot like my dad's stuff. I remember the caps well. I have his capper. It looks identical to yours.

I did not find his recipe though.

I lost my Dads capper sometime ago in a move I fear. Absolutely amazing though that you got the recipe and I am going to do it myself. Thanks for sharing

Can't imagine the amount of starches to sugars from the potato. Been thinking about this for a while..,........
