    Hey, folks, I have some all grain equipment that I picked up in a deal at a time when I thought
    I might get into it. I find I'm happy with the "lesser" processes and with wine making, so I'd

    particularly the larger volume batches of whites, but would like some help with the pros and

    Here's a picture of the chili wine as of today...October 18th. Sorry about the quality of the
