    I would say that you should consider ability to set and maintain temperature, storage
    space/racks as compared to storage vs. production. if you are thinking of starting a business
    of it.... The produc...

    Just needed to consider yeast strain before I pitched for the next batch. Then all I needed was
    to ensure the batch had nutrients and energizer, to keep the yeast I had chose for this batch.

well I see your from southern Arkansas, I live up in the north east corner. like you I'm learning and experimenting.
I tend to like the experiments the best , I've found out what ever fruit, berry, or grapes you can max out the alcohol using ec-1118 yeast then back sweeten with pure powered honey, to 1010 to 1020. you get the fruit taste to start, but instead of a alcohol after taste you get a honey over tone that hides the alcohol. an 34 to 36 proof wine that tastes good. a buzz to sleep on or 2 glasses to be out for quite awhile. good luck and best to you, Richard, OBTW I BULK AGE IN CARBOYS FOR A MINIMAL 2 YEARS, BUT MAKE QUICK WINE MAINLY TO TRADE FOR BOTTLES BUT I DRINK TOO IF I'M WAITING FOR SOME TO MATURE,

Yes, Sir. I get That. El dorado is the place. I am experimenting with mead right now. And I will be looking at Muscadine as soon as they ripen. I have a couple bushel plot at a friends house. And they grow every where here.I figure they can be a great flovor extender for a nice white or red.. Most of mine right now are about 30 proof, and I'm pretty happy with that right now. All of mine are waiting to mature. I figure the meads will mature quicker, and I can enjoy them until I until I get more, and I plan to save some of the mead for up to a couple years just to see the maturing of it..I guess 2 to 3 years is pretty elderly for mead.

I think next I might try the Dragon's blood and put it up for a 1 year or so..
