Went to my nephews 3rd birthday party today, as I was leaving my awesome brother gave me a 5gal carboy and 7gal fermenter ! So much for waiting to upgrade. Also started a strawberry wine last night (my first batch)

Did he also warn you about the......addiction?? FYI, you can get cheap carboys off Craigslist. Might as well start collecting now. This place is where you go for therapy.

Don't get that carboy wet, I swear that is how they multiply. Pretty soon you end up with 30 carboys and over 1000 bottles of wine and no place to store it all.

My brother is a beer brewer , he tried out wine making but fell off that wagon since a strawberry wine came out too dry for his taste and was entering a lot of home brew contests (btw he won) however I did give the coolest present (rock em sock em robots) and since the carboy and fermenter were just sitting around he gave them to me since I'll will put them to good use

This week end I moved some bottles into the rack and in so doing I emptied out a cardboard wine bottle box....I was so freaking happy!! I could box up another case of wine.....AND HUNT FOR A PLACE TO PUT IT!

We really like our small house...but we really need a big cellar for wine, veggie canning, meat freezers, and just dry cool storage space.

No but my dad (who is a winemaker) did and he named off all of the wine he has made, he says rice was his favorite
