    When you corked them, did you use the standard #9 corks and a regular floor corker?Got the
    corks and floorcorker from my LHBS don't know what cork size but they were the only corks they
    had. No proble...

    Used them to bottle my wine, worked great. I used corks, never tried to cap them.

    Just tested the acidity of the must and got ~13.08 g/L. Yikes! Way high, I have some potassium
    carbonate but apparently that should only be used to reduce acidity by 2-3 g/L seeing as my
    target range ...

    I have heard that malo-lactic cultures can be pitched at the same time as yeast or after the
    yeast fermentation completes, however, I talked to a guy from my local wine making club who
    suggested that ...

    Thanks for the advice, unfortunately I harvested a bit early and the grapes definitely have a

    My neighbor has a grape vine which produced more fruit than she could use so she let me harvest
    all the grapes which I plant to make into wine. I have made plum wine before based on a recipe
    I found o...

    I think you can't make a beer without a recipe. It doesn't sound like you have much to go on.
    Why don't you pick an IPA from the recipe database or from a source online, there are hundreds
    of recipes ...

    I just brewed this a few days ago, brewing went very smoothly because I measured out all the
    mash and sparge water ahead of time and cleaned and set up the equipment the night before. A
    few alteration...

    So what do you suggest? I only have 8 bottles I could uncork them, pour them back into a carboy
    and add some honey and re bottle later or just let them sit in my basement and mellow out.

    Well, I just bottled yesterday and after 7 months it was a spectacular failure. All the honey
    fermented out leaving a thin, dry mead comparable to "watery tequila." There was a nice
