Started my first fruit wine yesterday. One gallon concentrate of Vintner's (something) makes 5 gallons. Added 3 lbs of over ripe peaches, 1.5 tsp of cinnamon 2 tsp of Ferm K 1/2 gallon of extra water and 4.5 lbs of sugar to get the SG to 1.090. Pitched the KV1116 around noon and when I went to stir it at 9:00 and was shocked it had alreday started bubbling.

My wife and I made a whole bunch of canned peach related stuff today. We picked peaches yesterday.
40 jars peach pepper jelly
6 jars peach salsa
6 jars peach jam
4 jars peach chutney

Still a few pounds of peaches left but they are all soft and fruit flies all over them. I'll get some more to make wine with soon.

Kitchen's a bit of a mess!

Yesterday my wife and I participated in a Meritage blending competition at one of our local wineries. We were in the first group of the first day. When done there will be a total of 100 teams. The winning team gets their name on the back of the bottle and a case of wine. I don't expect to win because I couldn't seem to get a good end palate. What we submitted was 25% Cab Sauv, 25% Petit Verdot, 20% Merlot, 15% Cab Franc and 15% Malbec. Lots of fun and we each got a competition T shirt and a bottle of our blend.
