Several years ago, maybe in '07 I made some wine using Yooper's Welches grape concentrate recipe. It went well except that I had some questions during the fermentation process. I posted them here and the replies basically ran me off from this forum for several years.......they were rude and bordered on arrogance. Seemed to me that most thought any attempt to make wine from Welches was looked down upon as unfitting by most who commented. Yooper was, I believe ,out of state and unavailable to comment at the time.
I have continued to make wine and brew beer and have done ok, had my glories and my failures but kept going always.
I came back across this site again and am pleased to see that the recipe is still being used and improved upon by many who just enjoy wine-making simply for the pleasure of being able to taste it and say "I made this and it ain't half bad". Point is we all have to start somewhere and even if we are experienced brewers or/and winemakers, the simple pleasures and efforts mean something too. I am glad to see some attitudes are changing and these simpler recipes being accepted as important in the learning process of our hobbies.
BTW Yooper, that wine finally finished and turned out OK .I have still got the recipe in my notebook and made several batches and different versions of it. Thanks:
