Posted in thread: Potable water required??? on 11-15-2013 at 04:00 PM
I don't know the answer.. however, would you eat one of the grapes "cleaned" by unpotable
(which means not fit for drinking) water? I wouldn't... so I wouldn't want wine made from those

Why would carbonation get you more drunk than flat? Assuming the same volume was consumed?

I think the only way you could get to 12% without adding sugar is if you took a TON of
blackberries and boiled then down until you hit the right starting gravity.. but that would be
a LOT of blackberr...

Looks very nice! I just finished a wine rack today as well, although it is not as nice looking

I have never brewed beer, but I've made lots of wine. The fermentation almost never requires a
blow off tube, and is usually rather sedate. I've read that beer is much more vigorous.

If the juice tastes good, go for it. I'm sure you could tell if it was bad.

While it's true a hand corker will work just fine... a floor corker is REALLY nice. I would
definitely recommend getting one, even if you just rent it.
Posted in thread: Making Traditional rice Wine. Cheap, Fun, and Different on 03-26-2013 at 11:21 PM
So I just "harvested" my first batch, got about 2 cups of liquid out of it. I used a japanese
short grain sweet rice. It smells sweet, fruity with very light alcohol undertones. Haven't
tasted it yet,...
