there is a wine home brew place near my home that went out of busness today.

They offer customers a choice of wine, they have a tasting the customer picks the wine, they mix it teach the cust the proses of making wine and let the cust use there equipment. Then after its done the cust comes back and bottles it....

They make there own wine and they where selling there wine for cheap... im not a wine snob but its desent and i wont turn down a good deal and wine makes good x-mas gifts.

I went ahead and bought a cupple cases of wine and while i was having a cupple of glasses i ended up talking to the owner. I ended up asking him what he was going to do with all the carboys and buckets...... he takes me back to the Supply Room ........ "carboys and buckets Galore"

I asked "how much for 3 buckets and 3 carboys, all i have 40 bucks" He says "How big is your car"........... "VW Jetta"...... "You can have as many carboys and buckets as you can fit in you car"......

Apparently i can fit 20buckets and 20 carboys in my car......... He also threw in a Bucket full of airlocks and stopers, 3 bottle trees, Racking canes, and bottle and carboy brushes.......

First: I hate you.

Second: Any chance that your name is misleading and you live in Colorado, not Texas? Wanna share?
