    Naming your wine idea!

    I’ve got a green bottle in the closet with no label on it and I don’t remember what it is. What should I name it ?

    Ground Cherry - Wow!

    Looks Great Dave. I got a free package of “pineapple” ground cherry seeds with my Roselle (hibiscus) seeds. Since there appear to be maybe only 2 mangos (not 2 trees but two whole mangos) blossoming after Ian, I’m hoping to harvest enough Roselle to make a batch of zinger wine this fall or...

    Question about wine taste during the winemaking process.

    Wife has me redoing the kitchen. I’m already dreading handling carboys over the quartzite countertop. I’ve heard stories.

    Question about wine taste during the winemaking process.

    After 6-8 months here I have embraced the P word and 3 months is minimum for me now. I try to get to 6 months before I bottle, but my wine room is a closet. We don’t have a basement or any other place so sometimes I just have to bottle.

    All my beginner winemaking questions

    I’ll be fifth. As Dave said always make a little extra for topping off. I keep a small portion of fermented but not aged batch in the fridge for topping off. Having no basement and limited space I often have to bottle around 3 months, but no sooner . And one or 2 racking off of secondary but...

    My wildest - Day Lily JUICE! I'm going for it!

    Wow, nice color. I’m going to have to look into some flower wines since there will be little or no fruit this season due to hurricane. But plumerias took a hit too, and I have half the plants I used to. Maybe some hibiscus. I’m going to have to see what’s in the bottom of my freezer too.

    Why I Hate Winemaking

    No basement here either. Basements without Houses over them are what’s called a swimming pool.

    Hey! It's Vinny's Birthday Today!

    It’s a miracle your wife didn’t kill you for chipping the granite and flooding the house

    Concord wine problems

    It sounds like it will be OK even if it doesn’t ferment a little more. a lot to be said for fermenting in an open bucket as opposed to under an airlock.

    Frangipani / Plumeria Wine

    Pulled this bottle out of the fridge for a small snort today. It’s very nice. It has aged well if that’s even possible in the refrigerator. really nice taste. Sadly I have about 1/4 or less of the plumeria plants I had before hurricane Ian. I’m thinking I might get enough for a one gallon...
