    Post a Meme, any Meme! (no politics)

    Im probably the reason its a banned pic 🤣 I stopped using facejoke 5 years ago along with Twitter. I have a fairly extensive collection of completely inappropriate memes. I have to be careful what I post and where 😂 Im crude but goofy and Ill do my best not to offend. Don't be afraid to tell me...

    Strawberry Wine

    I love bumping old threads. Usually they're about something obscure and rather start a new one ill bump the old to keep info in one place. Its strawberry season here in Florida and i picked up 5 flats today. Initial weights after processing are around 8 pounds per flat so i should have an easy...

    What's in your glass tonight?

    Mango Jolly Rancher Shine is on tonight's menu. Super easy to make, simply put 20-25 Jolly Rancher candies in a half pint jar and fill with proofed Everclear or real shine if its available. Proof to 50% so the candies have enough water to dissolve which at 100 proof takes 24-36 hours. I like...

    Post a photo, any photo

    I lived off grid in a 1969 school bus in the mountains of north east Washington state for 10 years. Nothing more refreshing than trudging to the outhouse thru 4 feet of snow, -17f at 3am.

    Cherry wine from 100% cherry concentrate, few questions.

    I was going to do 4 carboys or approximately 20 gallons of wine. Half i wanted to fortify and drink when its done and the other half to barrel age for a while.

    Cherry wine from 100% cherry concentrate, few questions.

    @Rapter99 I know you have no reason to promote. You were recommending by price and dilution rates to get the most for the dollar. I was comparing the best actual to my door price i could get from both. Im very appreciative of the Fruit Fresh source. I searched for hours just to find Coloma and...

    Cherry wine from 100% cherry concentrate, few questions.

    So, math isnt my strong suit so let me make sure im not missing something, because i will. Im dislexic and numbers tend to turn tornadic in my head so i appreciate people's patience. Both concentrates are 68 brix. A typical single strength brix for tart cherrys is 14. Fruit Fresh suggests 1:7...

    Cherry wine from 100% cherry concentrate, few questions.

    Just to clarify, the 6.0 start ph is for a sugar wash meant for some neutral spirits and not wine. I realize ill need a much lower ph for the wine. Thank you for the info. Ill definitely use all this advice for this batch. Im still several weeks away from starting this and wanted to get my...

    Cherry wine from 100% cherry concentrate, few questions.

    When i lived in the area there were cherry an apple orchards as far as the eye could see but that was 15 years ago and unfortunately many were turned into subdivisions. I worked at several of the local processing plants making apple sauce, juice, cider and canning pie fruit which all came from...

    Cherry wine from 100% cherry concentrate, few questions.

    Thank you Rice Guy, good info to chew on and is very much appreciated. This will help me develop a plan. The distributor of the concentrate is Coloma frozen foods out of Michigan. Not sure if you've heard of them. I lived near there years ago and know their farm sources. I'll call them tomorrow...

    Cherry wine from 100% cherry concentrate, few questions.

    Ive had this idea for many years but have only recently delved into the world of fermentation and distilling. But an idea with out a plan is doomed to fail and ingredients arent cheap, especially fruit concentrates. Heres my idea and im hopng for a little help with a plan. So im wanting to...
