Bottling, for the first time there are two bottles of wine finished on the shelf. Now, what to do with them. You say you have "yet to bottle it". Is bottling a must? The blackberry wine was made in big one gallon glass bottles. Does that qualify as "bottling it" as bottling it is synonymous with being done, in my head? An off point question for you, when bottled, do the bottles go in the fridge or the pantry?

Seeing how you are using a 1 gallon bottle, I wouldnt bother bottling, but if you start drinking on it, then I would store it in the fridge. When I bottled my skeeter pee, they went straight to the pantry. I prefer them cold however, so I out one in the fridge, then replace it with a warm one when I drink the cold one. When I make 1 gallon batches if cider, I never bottle them...except the last one so I can experiment with carbing and pasteurization.
Technically, wine is "done" before you bottle. Unless you plan on aging in the bottle, I suppose.

I have been watching the starter for about 10 hours now. Truly amazing the show that mason jar has supplied. This would be an interesting science project. Took a video and put it on Facebook. Amazing! So impatiently waiting for 5 pm so I can see what it does in the pail. ????? Is the specific gravity to be done before or after putting the starter in the pail???????

This is the best stuff I've ever made bar none!!!

The downside is that it's so strong, I can't drink all that much or I get headaches. So, what I do is mix about two fingers with my homebrew beer and oh man!!! There be good times to be had with this combo!!!

I've already started collecting the lime juice in preparation for my next batch!!!!

Thanks AppleJacker!!!!!!
