    Wine Making Talk 2021 Survey

    Lol, I think the trains been derailed a bit and apologies. The laws for every state seem to be all over the place. I think in a nutshell (at least in the states) it's much like marijuana. Regardless of what some states may allow, it's still illegal on a federal level. Anyway, I do think it's a...

    Wine Making Talk 2021 Survey

    Not trying to start an argument or anything, but... I do know TXbrew runs other sites where distilling forums have been opened up for discussion, and my guess is these servers are located in the same place. Home distillation for spirits is illegal everywhere in the world except for New...

    Brown tinge in red blend kit

    I did a WE red blend kit a few months back and I've thought it had a hint of brown as well. Pictures are always so hard to on the www, but I consider mine to be perhaps a different tone of red. I can pour 3 different reds side by side and you can really tell that each has its own color even...

    Finer Wine Kits

    We've had 100f temps where I'm at and most of the country my package traveled was very warm as well. It took 3 days for mine to arrive and had it gone 4, I'm not sure it would have been good. I'd gladly pay a bit more for some dry ice packs.

    Finer Wine Kits

    My Barbera kit arrived today. It wasn't cold in the slightest. I wouldn't say it was hot, or even warm. But definitely not cold nor slightly chilled. Room temp. *Edit* and according to Advisory 2 at the top of the list, that should be fine. There is no swelling of the bag and it's cooling now.

    WE reisling kit tips

    I purchased a new wine bottle opener last night so of course I had to try it out. I opened a bottle of our Washington riesling and I must say, it is tasty. Sweet, but good! I was skeptical at first thinking it wouldn't amount to much, but now I want to leave it alone for a bit knowing that it...

    Finer Wine Kits

    Well, I ended up ordering the Barbera. I figured YOLO. And for $100 you can't go wrong really.

    Finer Wine Kits

    I was thinking about the Bordeaux. I do have plenty of space in my keezer, but I don't want to chance not getting it before I leave or one of my kids not being here should it arrive. I looked at the other new reds also, but honestly I just don't know any of them other than the Bord. Maybe a good...

    Finer Wine Kits

    I want to order the Super Tuscan but I'll be leaving town for a week next Sunday (father's day). Any idea how quickly they are shipping kits out?
