    Lift for carboy

    I started doing vacuum transfers so you never need to lift them. Check out the All in One Wine Pump , Steve is awesome to work with and makes great products. I happened to have a very HD commercial pump and Steve set me up with everything I needed, I would /will buy his pump if mine fails.

    $35 130 Bottle Wine Rack

    I am glad you reposted in this, very nice wine rack. I have been debating on building some for a room in the basement or buying pre-built units. My room will be about 11' x 6' with 103" ceiling I am looking at covering 3 walls. I looked at those Seville metal racks but they are not tall enough...

    I use these storage bins I picked up at Walmart. They are 24" long so they fit most everything

    The Inert Gas Thread

    I volunteer at a local Cidery sometimes to help with canning and the carbonate and chill the cider in the bright tank before canning. So when it goes into the can it is ready to drink.

    Wine Making Setup.. Let's see it!

    What is the temperature that your basement is at for wine storage? Also I was wondering how dark should the basement be for storing the full 6 gallon carboys? My brew storage area is on the same wall as the basement window but 20 feet from it NO direct sunlight ever. If I come down in the...

    Commercial kitchen style brew room ideas

    I like the bottle washer also, I have been thinking of adding that to mine in the very near future. Where did you get the valve that you have it attached to ?

    What would be an early drinking Cabernet Sauvignon or red blend you would recommend? I don't know a lot of different reds. We enjoy Malbecs Cabernet Sauvignon and red blends but don't really like merlots as much. I have seen many other red kits but I have never had those wines types before.

    Does yeast selection matter for aged reds?

    Which do you prefer over the EC-1118 the BM4x4 or RC212 if you could only get one? Mainly I am making Red Blends, Cabs, Malbecs etc

    BIG RED

    What other yeast swaps are recommended for wine kits? I will plan on getting some RC 212 the last 2 kits I made both came with EC-1118 I think the RJs Select CA red blend has the EC-1118 as well.

    Yes that would be awesome, the 2 red kits I have now need 18-24 months. I think the pink moscato is next summer 9-12 months.
