After 19 months, it's done! Bottled, labeled and waxed! Everything is handmade, labels designed and screen printed by me, and the wax is the DIY hot glue crayon kind.

The wine base was a burgundy. And the brandy... well we don't talk about where that was acquired from.

Just so pumped on this, wanted to share!

From brewing to mixing and bottling even the labels and waxing...All around perfection!

Well done!

It was pretty good last time I tasted it a month ago. Sweet with a slight heat on the way down. Not the best port ever, but I'm definitely happy with it.
