I like my wines dry, so backsweetening is heresy to me. YMMV, but I propose an alternative: time.

I just last week opened a red raspberry I made last summer. I loved it, but there's room for...

I've been storing wine on its side in plastic tubs in my basement. I get the flatter ones so that the bottles don't get layered more than 2-3 deep. No problems or accidents so far. I think the tubs...

I have re-used screw top bottles with corks. I'm fairly sure I have never used anything but #8s, but take an example bottle to the shop and compare. My corker has not failed me in the case of...
