This is my first time ever joining a forum. I have recently gotten into wine making. As a scientist by training, I love the chemical and biological aspects of the wine making process. I look forward to learning more about this and drinking lots of "experiments" as I go!

I'll send my wife's questions your way, she is currently taking chemistry and is lost. I'm more on the computer and biology end, so I'm of little help to her. I love to cook and tinker with things, plus I was a home brewer long before I started this wine stuff, so you might want to tinker with some grains as you can drink your batches of beer while you are waiting for your wine to "come of age". Welcome to WMT!

I'll vouch for this one.

She knows what she's doing on the science/chemistry/biology side of things and how they apply to winemaking, now she just needs to up her experience level in the actually making wine part of winemaking.

She's a great teacher and loves sharing her knowledge and experiences.

Craig, definitely open to getting chemistry questions! I will say I still dont understand the computer thing very well. I took one programming course in college and I pretty much lived in the teacher's office haha. I have tried so hard to like beer over the years, but I keep running into one problem - beer has a beery taste! If you have recipes for not beer tasting beer (like an alcohol-y fruit juice that isn't wine), I would love to try some out
