    DangerDave's Dragon Blood Wine

    I finally get it.... why people love DB. DB was the first wine I made in early December last year. I made 6 gallons, and then after racking it to secondary, I started an 18 gallon batch. When I first tried it at 3 weeks, I thought it was awful. I was seriously regretting making 18 gallons...

    I'm curious to see how this one has aged. Who made it and what do you think now? Any changes you would make?

    making labels

    For my first batch, I printed on plain paper and used a pastry brush to brush the back with milk. They turned out good. A very cheap option.

    How do I save my slurry?

    I'm racking my WE enigma this morning. I want to use the slurry to start a SP. I've never made a SP with slurry, so I didn't think through that I should have made the SP yesterday so I could dump in the slurry today. How can I save it until tomorrow? Thanks!

    saving slurry

    If you are going to make Skeeter Pee, try Danger Dave's "Easy Peesy". It's the same, but with yeast, not a slurry. Very easy. :h

    10 gallon fermenter

    I second what Mike said. The 10 gallon Brute from Home Depot is MUCH cheaper than the 10 gallon white fermenter. I have the 10, 20, and 32 gallon. We call them baby, mama, and daddy bear.
