    Cellar Craft Cellar Craft Showcase Barbera

    Thank you for the clarification. Do you make your wine from grapes or from a kit? I am not near any wine producing region (the Okanagan is 800 km and several mountain passes away) so have been using kits for wine. Would be really lovely to be able to purchase or grow grapes

    Cellar Craft Cellar Craft Showcase Barbera

    Hello, I am fairly new to wine making, started about 16 months ago. So far my favourite is Cellar Craft showcase Barbera which I started about 14 months ago. I wanted to start a new batch but was told in the store it has been discontinued [emoji22] Can you recommend another wine that is similar...

    What is your favorite kit?

    Thanks, I really should start making tasting notes and see how it develops. Haven’t done this yet, I started making wine about a year ago, but now that some of the wines have had a chance to age a bit it would be good idea to compare. Do you bulk age or bottle age?

    Skeeter pee fermenting without yeast

    Hi, the slurry was from a white wine which I racked into a carboy about a week or so before I made the skeeter pee. I kept the gross lees (slurry) back in a mason jar in my fridge until I was ready to start the SP. It is fermenting very well ATM. I have only made wines from a kit so far which...

    Skeeter pee fermenting without yeast

    Hi, the skeeter pee is in a primary atm so no airlock. Looked like general signs of fermenting, starting to bubble lively. No scientific evidence. I chose to err on the safe side and added my reserved slurry. I think next time I might use a package of yeast instead. The first 2 batches...

    Skeeter pee fermenting without yeast

    Slurry is from a GC Chenin Blanc kit. Probably EC 1118? But not 100% on this. Yeast I was using for the other kits I started yesterday was EC 1118

    Skeeter pee fermenting without yeast

    Hi, I started my 3rd batch of skeeter pee yesterday, prepared everything for adding the yeast slurry later today...except when I checked on it this morning it looks like it is already fermenting. 1. Should I just let it do it’s own thing? 2. If I do add the yeast slurry will the end product be...
