    What R you doing today?

    C'mon, this is a wine forum. Be careful with your acronyms. Is this a new sort of Malo Lactic Bacterium that rises from the ashes of the last fermentation? :)

    First Batch

    Let the wine continue to clear and sediment (and yeast!) fall out. I would wait and add the sorbate shortly before sweetening, then wait a week and make sure it is not refermenting, then bottle.

    Post a Meme, any Meme! (no politics)

    Hate to tell you, but after you're gone, your dog would no longer be in danger of starving! :eek:

    Going native fermentation, MLF ?

    Okay, but this is a specious argument, at a couple of bucks a pop. Sure, if you are fairly convinced (through positive experience) that you have an established "house yeast" in your vineyard or fermenting room, perhaps. But if one is buying grapes from varied sources (most of us do, anyway)...

    First Batch

    What's for Dinner?

    Yeah, bucatini is tough that way, right? Good thing that Lady and the Tramp didn't order bucatini all'Amatriciana, huh?

    What's for Dinner?

    I apologize in advance: I am posting WAY too many pix of this quotidian meal. But what the hell, electrons are cheap, no? And it is not like you all have somewhere else to go right now! :) Ho-made baked bread (very plain); Cannelloni beans (za'atar spice seasoning); frozen green beans (due to...

    What's for Dinner?

    Yes, I have some old stuff in the freezer, too, and I am (also?) using the zombie coronapocolypse as a reason to use up the old stuff (and avoid the grocery store).

    What's for Dinner?

    Tasted better than it looks! Bucatini all'Amatriciana, braised fennel, and deep-fried artichoke hearts with truffle oil and parmigiano reggiano.
