  • Retired June 2010
  • Brewed some in the early 70's, primarily out of economic necessity as a college student. Beer was drinkable, wine typically was not. Have been more successful in last year - probably with added patience and ability to buy appropriate equipment. Beer has been impressive, but haven't progressed beyond Coopers kits. My wife and I love sweet wines and my Concord (from the vines in our backyard) is awesome - but not appreciated by friends who don't like sugary sweet wine.
  • Still waiting to sample the gooseberry wine from this summer. Just about ready to try beer from scratch, but I have to admit that I've been impressed with the simplicity of the kits. Coopers wheat beer is a big family hit.
  • Three gallons of apple wine and one gallon of Concord grape made from home-grown concentrate.
  • I've made beer in 6 gallon batches and have bottled two batches of wheat beer (already consumed), one batch of Porter, one batch of Ale and two more batches of wheat beer currently in various stages of consumption.
    I've bottled a variety of wine - 10 gallons of Concord wine (made from fresh grapes harvested in 2009), one gallon of Gooseberry, one gallon of apple (excellent - and nearly gone)
