    Frozen juice ferment progress

    Health issues have turned out much more serious than i hoped. How long can I safely leave reisling in a carboy before it starts going downhill? Might be a few months before I can do anything with.

    Frozen juice ferment progress

    Life got in the way, or rather health did. I'm not in any shape to be doing much at the moment, so Gail (wife) helped me with a racking of the 2018 Reisling from WGD I started in April, and both the Gewurz and the Reisling will get a couple more months in carboys while we wait on the doctors to...

    Frozen juice ferment progress

    Planning to bottle this weekend. I fermented to dry, but it has enough fruitiness and acidity that my wife liked it from the first sip, and she greatly prefers sweeter wines.

    Starting temp to pitch yeast for grape juice question

    I have a pail of riesling juice from WGD. It is about 45-48 F now, at 8:25pm. Is that too cool to pitch? I really don't want to wait until morning, getting ready for work and all that. But I don't want to be up until midnight either... Edit to say never mind, by time i stirred it up and poured...

    Corona Virus & Day to Day

    I got my second Pfizer shot Tuesday morning. Had a slight fever at 8:30pm, 103.4 by 4:00 am. Yesterday was spent in my chair under a blanket, feeling like I'd been run over by a herd of elephants in the Sahara at high noon. Fever broke during the night and i felt well enough to go in to the...

    What do you drive.....

    I drive a 2013 F150 4x4 that I got 2 years ago. Last one lasted me 15 years. We just traded wife's 2015 Outback for a 2018 Forester. Great improvement in comfort and room. Too many issues with the outback, zero issues with our first Forester, a 2009.

    WineXpert kit goof?

    I'm going to rack my nebbiolo this weekend. After EM of 5 weeks (6 from pitching yeast), will the skins be worth freezing for anything else (mead?), or just feed 'em to the chickens, guineas and peafowl?
