    Noob bit off more than he could chew.

    No sense in worrying about it. You already pulled the trigger. It comes down to taste and what you like. Dont worry about it. If it's to sweet for you someone will drink it lol

    DangerDave's Dragon Blood Wine

    Glad to see this one is still popular. It was my first wine. It is also where I learned the Basic winemaking skills. Winemakers tend to toss a recipe at you when you're new. They do not realize how new we really are. They tell you the ingredients and how much and that is all. lol. I hope to...

    Wine Expert Island mist peach/apricot

    These little kits are fun to play with while you're aging your really good wines. I always add half the fpack up front in the fermentor. I save the rest for the end when I Back sweeten and finish. It's too sweet for me and more of a wine cooler if you don't. I also add 5 cups of sugar to up the...

    Apfelwein (Hard German Apple Cider)

    This wound up Being the Best Apple wine I have ever had in my life. It was soooo Bad at first I named it Sasquatch. I added way to many cloves. After realizing, my mistake I removed them all after just a few days. I used Brown sugar to Back sweeten instead of white which makes it harder to...

    Pumpkin Pie wine

    Im thinking of starting a pumpkin pie wine using canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. Has anyone else ever tried it? Do you think it would Be way to heavy on the flavors? My husband said yes I say No. I figure if I start it now it might Be ready for Thanksgiving 2019

    Best way to add flavor

    Wine has always been kinda simple to me. You take the fruit the sugar and yeast? The rest is your personal touch! Its amazing. You make it your own.
