crusher-destemmer to remove the stems and pop the grapes. I've never rinsed the grapes before
pressing, not sure a...

I just finished building an 8'x12' cellar under my house in the crawl space, on the north side

I have a 36.5 qt pot & fill it about 1.5-2 inches below the rim. It is a bit tight, but I just
