    If you want to add a little kick, add a few pounds of honey. It will ferment to a drier finish,
    and add 1% per pound. No need to boil, just dissolve in hot water

    Bob, Im southwest of Springfield. Im going to move my patch this year to a spot that has a bit
    more shade, but will still get plenty of sun. Hopefully it will retain more moisture, and I am

    I got my rhizomes last week. They are in pots right now, and a couple have already sprouted. Im
    in southwest MO, and planted in the wrong place last time. Too much sun and not enough water.

    Shoot the squirrels. Use a small caliber rifle or pistol, such as a .22, and try for a head

    but you might look into clarifying agents-maybe polyclar?

    I use honey in several beers as well as cider. It will add 1% abv per pound. Takes a little
    longer to ferment and condition, but well worth the wait

    my great grandads Pr...

    Ive made several honey ales, using from 1-3 lbs honey. Honey ferments completely, which will
    add a drier finish to beer. It will add 1 percent alcohol per pound. Some say boil, some say
    dont boil. I h...

    Thanks. I plan on building my own crusher and press, then buying the grapes and fruit until
    those I plant start to produce

    When making wine from grapes, does one need to remove the seeds, or just run fruit thru crusher
    seeds and all? I know stems need to be removed
