Default Reusing A Must?

Has anyone ever made a must that explicitly said DO NOT SQUEEZE...or DO NOT MASH the pulp? What if there was a LOT of pulp and flavor and stuff left...would you even consider adding water, taking a hydrometer reading and adding sugar to try to squeeze another gallon out of the must?

Sure, that's called a "second wine". Usually, you would also add some fresh fermentables.

Default Getting a grape vine

Neighbor was mowing his field today so I walked over to say hi. ( older gentleman, nice as he can be) I told him about the new hobby of wine making and he told me his wife made some on occasion with their grapes. I didn't realize but he has a small grape arbor( right word?) and offered to get a couple of starts for me to transplant in my yard.

Asian pears do taste good. Try red pears too they are excellent

I plan on doing this with my blackberry wine. I'll add water and sugar for a gravity of 1.040 and make a cider-like second.

Nice! Never thought of trying that... apple juice added to the must would make an easy second wine since the sugar is already in there.
