    winery names

    Looks like I am the only vote for Hazy Days, but that sounds great to me. Describes a southern afternoon on the back deck with a nice glass of wine. That's my vote.

    star san bubbles

    If fermentation is complete I wouldn't worry, but an excess of star San could slow down your fermentation if you are racking out of primary and fermentation is still active.

    New Label for my Merlot

    Are you looking for suggestions?

    Kelman Bottles

    With my buddy Sam, we decided to get some bottles. On our way back now from Kelmans bottles. Bought 20 cases each, so 40 cases are in the truck on the way up north. We got 15 cases clear punted beautiful bottles, and 20 cases of light green punted, and 5 of a darker green punted bottle...

    Icelia's Laboratory

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    I wouldn't be afraid of Them. Glass is non-pours, so some good scrubbing an oxyclean you should be good. So you have a bottle-brush?

    Moving into our new house next week. And I have a good 8x10 room in the basement that I am going to turn into a Wine/Cheese Lab. Here is a photo of it as is. I am going to strip it, and seal it. Paint the walls white, and make a workbench that goes all around. I am going to put in bottle...

    Cold Stabilize Skeeter Pee?

    Has anyone done a cold Stabilize on SP? Seems that excess acid would drop out and make the flavor even better than it already is. Any thoughts?
