Just curious as my SWMBO likes wine more than beer so I decided to try my luck with a batch of wine. Going to pop open the first bottle tonight. Wonder how many brewers are also doint wine.
God is great, beer is good and people are crazy....

I keep telling myself I am going to but haven't done it yet. I did buy a corker and some corks to bottle up the Ed Wort's Apfelwein I made, so I am a little closer I guess.

I made a batch of Reisling (sp?) a couple of years ago but neither SWMBO or I cared for it. It came out to dry. One of the neighbors loved it though and drank it all.

I don't make it very often, because five gallons of wine lasts a long, long time.

I started out making fruit wine, mead and cider, and have now gotten into beer. I have yet to make a wine from actual Vitis vinifera grapes or juice, though I really want to make a batch soon.

At least this is what my computer told me when I asked it. It did take a while.
