  • Posted in thread: Should you top up everytime you rack? on 09-22-2014 at 06:53 AM
    I've gotten into the habit of making extra in primary, putting the excess into smaller jugs to
    either ferment or freeze. Then you have extra to use for top up. No dilution. The freezing
    option probabl...

    I bought some expensive synthetic corks for the 2-4 bottles per batch I put in what I call my
    archives. The corker leaves a big hole in the cork however. Any good tricks for getting around
    this? Maybe...

    i recently bottled last year's rhubarb wine, following Jack Keller's recipe (of course). It is
    by far the best wine I've ever made, so this year I've started two batches, and have enough (12

    I'm ashamed to have no experience in Saskatoon Wine, even though I am from Saskatoon... and
    work for a Saskatoon Berry company. I will one day (no room in carboys and don't want to buy
    more!)Make sure...

    I planted extra beets for a few gallons of wine this year - I figure even if it tastes like
    crud, it will at least be a beautiful colour!Does anybody have any experience they can share?
    Anyone tried a...

    Just an update that this turned out quite well. It was bottled June 22 and I'm already half way
    through (gave a lot away). It aged a little in the carboy, and was delicious when it was
    bottled.My only...

    Hi folks,I know pectic enzyme is usually added before ferment (only used it once for jam wine
    and it cleared beautifully), but I pitched the yeast on my first batch of rhubarb 7 days ago,
