  • I got into homebrewing with basic homemade hard cider. (Sugar and yeast added to fresh cider from a local mill, put a balloon on top, sit for 30 days, enjoy). The next step for me was to Welch's frozen grape juice wine. I had a friend who made partial mash beer so he got me into that about 2 years ago. in fall of 2011 I got into 'real' wine with freshly pressed grape juices from a local vineyard and home pressed fruit wines. I now am an All-Grain brewer complete with hops growing up my house.
