We grow apples, apricots and peaches and often have an abundance left to make a variety of
wines. Fruit wines can be wonderful, and inexpensive to make when you grow your own fruit. You
can't buy wine...

Hi there brewers,I have been making wine for a year now and done four batches. One of the
things I have found is that my wine is often sweet, and I would like it less so.I have recently
brought a hydr...
Posted in thread: Looking for a good deer camp wine on 09-24-2012 at 05:23 AM
My favorite wines go to hunting camp to share with the guys in the evening. Some fellows aren't
regular wine drinkers so I take a few fruit wines that are lighter or sweeter, and a few
heavier tannic ...
Posted in thread: Looking for a good but fast wine ... on 09-22-2012 at 07:42 AM

Hummer, I was wondering about what benifits there are to leaving the peach skin on. I'm just
imagining all the little peach fuzzies floating all over the place. Also how long many days do
you stir to ...

Hummer, will bottle-aging work as well as bulk-aging to dissipate the SO2? I've read that it's
harder to get rid of excess sulfites in bottled wine, because the sulfites have nowhere to go,
so I thoug...
Posted in thread: What to do with fruit, afterwards? on 06-06-2012 at 07:54 PM

making jam from i...
