    Just checked mine that I started last fall. It's ready to bottle after a year in the carboy
    though it seems a bit thin. I'm topping it off with apple juice after filtering it; if it takes
    off fermenti...

    Just re-racked the gallon I started last winter. About time to bottle. I'm debating whether to
    sweeten it a bit as the jalapeņo is quite distinct and a bit of sweet to balance might make it
    a nice acc...

    Last year's attempt didn't work out well. Something nasty, green, and disagreeable grew in it
    at some point (ew). This year I'm going to do a few things differently: using a whole nutmeg,
    cinnamon chi...

    Fixing to start a second gallon of this today. I'm considering using one nice big Hatch chili
    pepper. They have such a nice flavor I'd live to find out how much (if any) difference it'd

    I got a lovely hibiscus tea from Mountain Rose Herbs and made a scrumptious methylene with it.
    Just bottled it today. Oh. My. Soooooo good

  • Posted in thread: Spicing Apple wine in the bottle? on 09-16-2013 at 03:17 AM
    You know, I think I'd spice it when serving. Hot spiced wine is one of life's true pleasures.

    Lol!!!! When I tasted it, it tasted awful, but I hadn't yet filtered it. ( I filter all my
    wines since I have a nasty allergy to yeast.). At any rate, we got all the rest of the wines
    bottled and then...

    ... To all who post here, answer "dumb" newbie questions, etc. This weekend my husband helped
    me bottle a number of gallons of fruit wine which have been sitting in my wine closet for
    almost a year. I...

    Tonight, this finally got bottled. I let it sit. And sit. And sit. And am glad I did because
    THAT, sir, is heaven in a bottle. My husband doesn't like it, but I'll have to beat my
    daughter-in-law-'s f...
