    Hello from Missouri

    Glad to have you aboard. What part of the state are you from? I'm just south K.C. If you're planning a commercial operation, be sure to post when you're open and I'll stop by.

    Hi from Missouri

    Been lurking here from a couple months and just thought I'd say hi. I started making wine in the early 70's and quit until a couple years ago started back up again. Hope to run across some good recipes and advice here. Have tried some of Jack Keller's with mixed results. Also have had mixed...
