Some more attenuation would be good because it's still a little too sweet for my tastes. If I
can get it down a between 1.010-1.005, I'll be happy. It's not that it was a bad beer before,
but rather i...

Thanks. I wasn't planning on it being done any time soon, but I always like to have a
contingency plan. I figured with the simple sugars from the grapes it would be droping a little
quicker, but you'r...

9 month update.I bottled the beer the other day as I'm moving and would rather move a box of
