Depends on where in Richmond. My wife's family lives on the East end and they have a well so

Putting together ingredients to do this brew but I am having trouble sourcing the WLP500 yeast

I've done that kit and in my experience most of the wine expert kits end up too sweet and the
abv is pretty low. Typically I'll add in an extra 2-3 pounds of sugar which takes the abv to
