    So I just did my first batch of beer recently after about a year of winemaking, an Irish Red
    Ale. All in all, it came out really good, but there's a few things I noticed that I think I can
    do better n...

    God I love Maker's. Thinking about it's got me sad I bought scotch instead of bourbon on my
    last booze-run. I think Jim Beam might do in a pinch. I find Daniel's too harsh, but maybe
    that's just me.

    Discovery or whatever where they were talking about how ice apple ciders are made, and it got
    me intrigued. ...

    The bottle doesn't say what type of cherries, but I did find one of Jack Keller's recipes for
    morello cherries, which are apparently sour/tart, that I think I can adapt: Wine [Dry] (3) 8
    lbs morello ...

    I haven't done anything yet. I've been considering trying some fining agents, perhaps starting
    with some bentonite and seeing if that does any good, but I've been too busy with other
    projects to tackl...

    I was under the impression that if it was pectin, it would be more evenly distributed through
    the wine... but maybe I'm confusing myself after reading hundreds of different posts and
    articles. Do you ...

    I scored at the local grocer today on a great deal on Organic Just Tart Cherry juice -- --
    and I want to try making a cherry wine with this, picked up a gallon's worth. Any clue as to
    where I might ...

    I've got a blackberry melomel that I started back in February, it's been in the secondary now
    since May... I was hoping by now it would have cleared out much better, but you can see there's
    still quit...

    I'm finally ready to bottle my first batch of mead. It seems like it's been ages (it's been
    about 7 months) since I started, and I can't wait to taste it. I know I should wait at least a
    couple of wee...
