This wine is awesome! I tried a rather large glass from the bottom of the carboy. It was cloudy but so good. I think it is ready to drink now but I will wait.I ended up with 30 bottles.

Wow- that is beautiful! Such a great color. I bottled some beautiful apple wine today (no pics, though) but I did a motley assortment of bottles and it isn't nearly as gorgeous as what you have there.

Thanks for sharing your pics!

Thank you for the kind words.
I bet your apple wine is fantastic. How long did it sit before you bottled it? My two gallon batches have just started getting clear and it's been about 7 weeks. I noticed today that they are no longer suitable for photography props.
I figure they will need another 4 or 5 months before bottling.

My apple wine was incredibly quick- only about 4 or 5 months from ferment to bottle. I bottled it dry, at .996. It is really tasty- a bit tart but still a good bit of apple flavor. My dandelion wine, however is another story. I fined it to help clear it finally, and racked it again today. The dandelion tastes fine, but there is no way it's ready to bottle yet. I bet it'll keep throwing less for a while. I might need to sweeten that one a bit- it's at .992 and way too dry for that type of wine. I think I 'll let it sit a bit and see what I think in the spring.

I think your apple wine would still be photography worthy. Go ahead and take a pic and let me see!

I just opened a bottle to give it a try. It's been a month and the directions say it should be ready. I thought it tasted pretty good but when I turned around and looked at SWMBO, I thought she had tasted rat poison. I hope it improves over the next few months or I'm going to have to drink 29 more bottles of wine by myself...

The wine looks good for sure, but I'm impressed by your corking abilities. All of my corks stick out 1/4 to 3/8 of and inch and everyone of them is slanted on the top. I bought a used wing-type corker, but cannot get them corks flush or even.


The wines that I make for SWMBO are kit wines and drinkable in 4 weeks. I'm not much of a wine maker I guess, but this stuff is good.
