    Oldest ice wine

    So I moved in September and the previous owners were hoarders and left us a house full of mostly junk. Amongst the chaos I found a box with a niagara ice wine collection. All vintages from 1989-1992. So over the weekend we were celebrating announcing that our first born will be a boy according...

    Ideas for carbonator

    So I picked up one of the units in the attached photo at a an auction on a whim. Grand total of $6.22.

    I was hoping to brew this weekend but im plagued with a sore lower back which means no lifting 5+ gallons of liquid. I know somebody out there must have some ingenious solutions to this problem. Im open to changing my setup to accomodate. Sent from my SGH-I317M using Home Brew mobile app

    cider foam

    This is my first time making cider. I used a centrifugal juicer I had to juice the apples. I was left with a foamy layer about 3 inches thick on top. Should I suck this layer off before pitching my yeast today or is it ok to leave it. I think it might spoil the cider due to the fact that its...
