    ya, it's only been about 3 months. i'm thinking as well that it needs time, especially since
    it's aging at 70F instead of my usual 80F.thx

    I've made a couple of kits now with good results, and this last kit I fermented in a temp
    controlled freezer at 70F (hoping to have really nice results).I don't know if it's just the
    way the wine is s...

    sounds interesting to me because Hawthorn berries are a cardiotonic, used to treat
    hypertension.how much are the berries costing you?as for taste, i've never tasted the

    thx for the replies.so if i'm doing a wine expert kit (i've done about 4 in the past) do i even

    Was wondering if I can substitute LHBS bentonite for what comes in my wine-expert kit? I
    screwed mine up by adding hot water to it instead of the other way around.. ended up with a
    nasty clumpy mess t...

    i was about to "stir the bucket" (no pun intended) but then i started thinking about how the
    instructions say to "sprinkle" the yeast on top of the solution and then "cover."since the
    airlock was bubb...

    hehe that's pretty funny.i always just assumed to make it a closed vessel with an airlock so
    that i could keep out all the bad buggers!i just checked the instructions and it says "cover
    the primary co...

    btw, if i have an airtight lid with an airlock, how would it be getting O2 anyway?thx

    howdy,thanks for the reply.i think it has to do with temp and time. i had everything sitting in
