Nice going Jim, ask three dumb questions and he is outta here.

I don't think they are such "dumb" questions, simpleton maybe........but this guy joined the forum 6 weeks ago, hasn't made wine in a long time, had never done a kit wine and was just getting started on them. Truncated version of his post below:

"Hi everybody,

I am back in the game after looong hiatus. Been lurking for a while on this board, what's a treasure of knowledge and lots of friendly fellowship here.

I am new to wine kits, in my old days I only made fresh fruit and frozen concentrate wines including some meads and melomels.

Waiting for my 3 wine kits to arrive.

Andrew in sunny Fl"

It's unfortunate for him that he was unable to return the "friendly fellowship".

His responses on other posts weren't much better, someone was asking for a cherry wine recipe a few weeks ago. He responds within minutes with "Google it!"

This was not the first issue/problem with the OP.

FYI: If you are a "newbie" asking for help here and help arrives and then you basically chew out the help your gonna be escorted out the door PDQ.

I knew that!!! I did quote you to keep the train going, but I was referring back to the post where they were initially called dumb, that was Jim's, and I don't think they were dumb, as the OP was new to wine kits. Sorry for the lack of clarity!!

Well Engler, I'm sure your still reading this from the outside looking in. Hopefully you you learned a little something sir. Because I'm sure when you speak with WinExpert customer service they will be asking you many similar questions in attempting to figure out the problem.
Try not to lose your cool when they do. Because they will. And they can't just take your word for it like you expected here. Since the possibility of human error is a very real thing for the rest of the world.
Also, I'm aware all carboys are not identical, and that the exact volume can differ slightly. But Is 6.5gal to actual 7gal a common thing? A half gallon seems like a very large amount.

It would be pretty ironic if it turned out that the must was not stirred well enough or something! You have to ask the 'dumb' questions, and as Ajmassa5983 said, the manufacturer will ask them, too!
