    Has anyone made Wine Lovers kits?

    @Khristyjeff in post # 27 you wrote "added a blackberry f-pac". Did you make the f-pac from the 'tweaking cheap kits' thread instructions or did you buy it pre-maid? I am very interested in the WineLovers kits.

    Where to buy New York grown grapes?

    Have you thought about Walker's Wine Juice? Not grapes but juice. They seem to have a good reputation here on WMT. Walker's Wine Juice, New York

    Recommendations for new pH meter?

    I have an Apera PH60 meter and have had no problems with it. I also purchased the buffer and storage solutions, so the price came to about USD 100. I don't use it often but it seems to be a quality piece of gear.

    MLF not progressing?

    Never give up. Use vinegar as an absolutely last resort. If you have to go to vinegar it will make a wonderful bait to go in fruit fly traps.

    How Much Do You Give Away

    I didn't know how many friends I had until I started making wine! I probably give away about 25% and drink with friends when they come over about 25%. It is absolutely worth it!:)

    anyone heard from Hounddawg?

    I live in the country (Pinewood, SC pop. +/- 538). All my neighbors grow figs, blueberries, peaches, pears and more. It is a point of pride that we grow and exchange the excess fruits of our labors. A lot of the excess is made into the most enjoyable country wine I have ever tasted! I do...

    Stuck fermentation

    Do you have a hydrometer and can you measure the specific gravity? It may be possible to make another batch that ferments down to bone dry and blend the two batches

    Florida Grapes

    I believe it is a bronze-skinned type of muscadine. Easy to grow in the hot, humid southeast.

    Broken Carboy

    Any idea what could cause tanks to fail like that? Such a shame, but no use crying over spilled milk wine.

    New to the wine making concept

    Which native fruits do you have access to? If you can get lemons, you could make 'out-of-this-world' skeeter pee.

    Coloma Frozen varietal grape concentrates

    If I have done the math correctly, 1 quart Coloma plus 3 quarts water should equal one gallon. For a six gallon batch that would be 6 quarts Coloma or 5.68 liters per 6 gallon batch. The entry level/cheap kits (my Winexpert Classic Washington Riesling) provide 8 liters per 6 gallon batch. I...

    It is possible that you need yeast nutrient and yeast energizer to get a good, complete ferment.
