If you're wanting more wine specific info, you should probably try the forums over at winepress.us. they have tons of good info and its ALL geared towards wine for the most part. Friendly bunch too.

Thanks for the info but I like it here. Besides I have 7 gallons of cider going right now as well so I like being able to getting a lot of good info from one place on both my projects. When the weld shop across the street is done with my next half keg or quarter barrel going to try something else not sure what yet.

Lol, Well, I looked back through the thread and realised you never told us what you were making! So what did you make so far this year, and what do you like to drink?

I prefer German whites, but have been tring to expand my horizons lately.

Ok, so these are all blended in the different kegs? Interesting blends. How is the merlot/chardonnay/burgundy blend? That one might appeal to me.

As for new wines to try, I suspect you might like Gamay, or Pinot Noir. Both are easy drinking French Reds. Woodchuck drinkers may like a nice Riesling, as they tend to have crisp apple notes like Woodchuck.

Hope that helps you find something you like. :-)

I always blend at bottling, if I'm doing a blend. That way you can measure the acidity, lower it or increase it for each variety, and see how they come out before blending. Just a suggestion!

Not really able to explain the flavor, but I really like it.
