Default Anyone have a grape press in Atlanta?



Does anyone in/near Atlanta have a grape press they would be willing to rent me?

A guy at work brought me some muscadines to make some wine and would like to use a press rather than stomp on em -- though the latter may be more fun

If you can't find a press you could crush them in 1 gallon baggies with a rolling pin. I did 35 pounds in about 30 minutes. I froze then thawed them first.
