So once a year my company brings in 6 gallon buckets of wine and wine grapes for some local vinters. Well the other day we were moving around some pallets and found 4 6 gallon buckets of grape juice that have been sitting there since last September. The lids were bulging quite nicely but the grommet kept them from assploding. Since they were "bad" I offered to take one home. It's already pretty much fermented out from natural yeasts and I must say that they did an outstanding job. I pitched some EC-1118 and poured what would fit in a primary just in case. That left me with about a half gallon to get rid of. I've paid good money for worse wine. By the time I get through this half gallon maybe the rest of it will be ready to bottle.

You left the other 3?
Day after day, it reappears. Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear. Ghosts appear and fade away. Come back another day.
