    Elderberry Wine

    I took a flash light and put it on the backside of the carboy. Seemed like a great way to check clarity of such a dark colored wine. One you could see the light a quarter of the way down the carboy then it went out. The other you could follow the light clearly all the way to the bottom...

    Blackberry looking somewhat strange

    The bottom of the carboy has the usual sediment on bottom but it is growing four to five inches up the side of the carboy. Does this usually happen often?I was hoping that it was alright I just was wondering what caused it. Looks like steaks growing up the side kind of the carboy.

    elderberry wine

    I was wondering if it would be a good idea to put oak chips in elderberry wine to give it a different flavor. Has anyone ever tried that? It seems like that would be good with the oak in it.

    black berry

    ok the black berry was done I stabilized it. After took 4 lbs of sugar and boiled it in water added it to the black berry a little at a time until it tasted sweet enough. It took 4 lbs to taste as sweet as I think I like. I am just a little concerned about 6 months from now what it will taste like.

    I am finishing up a kit. I had to take about four cups of the wine out so the f-pack would work. The instructions said take 2 cups out but that wasn't enough.
