I guess little things excite me....... I went out with my wife to help some senior citizens yesterday.....Me being nice and all, and I hit the mother load. 12 ooops 11 one gallon glass jugs, no longer being used by one of the nice ladies where given to me. A couple of hours of elbow grease and I now have enough secondaries to make many small batches.
So be nice to those older folks in your neighborhood, help them progam there new tv's and you might just find your own mother load.
On a nother subject i am making a list of Questions that I wil be asking all of you. I also am hoping maybe there is someone(with lots of experience) that I can call and to talk to about wine making. Let me know if anyone would be up to that.
Also, my own thought on cleaning and sanitizing. I was in the restaurant business for 25+ years and when and one thing the health dept. made us do was rinse with cold water. So when doing your final rinse, make it as cold as you can handle. I know a lot of people that rinse with warm water(bacteria love warm water). I have not seen any one mention that in the forums.
