    Hello from Cleveland

    Welcome from a fellow NEO resident. Great place to learn and share. If you safe looking for good kits. Label Peelers with Finer Wine Kits is not that far away from you if you want to save on shipping. I’m real close to them so it makes it easy. Also. Go Crew!

    The Bread Thread

    A friend at work brought in a sourdough starter for me last week. I’ve been making breads from the Ken Forkish book so I figured I would give this a try. It turned out good.

    What's for Dinner?

    Pizzas last night. One of ours guests is gluten intolerant so I made some doughs with Caputo Fioreglut flour. It made a good pizza. Everyone liked it and I was able to stretch it out. Definitely will use again.

    Your.. Own wine / Bought wine?

    I’m in the 90% probably as well. Under 300 total in bottle, and around 150 in bulk. My wife thinks I should slow down, but then she says that Super Tuscan is really good…and I have to explain that we are getting low so I better make more!

    I have made the WE Private Reserve Sonoma Chard, the WE Reserve Australia Chard and the FWK Lodi Chard. All are good. I made the FWK and Australia at the same time. I have a slight preference for the FWK. I felt the flavors were a little softer, but similar. I had some friends taste both...

    Cold and high winds this weekend, but didn’t let that stop me from smoking some pork to have some friends over.

    What's for Dinner?

    I’ve been busy and haven’t posted in a while. My birthday dinner a few nights ago. I didn’t get a photo of the plate, but steak and lobster with tiramisu made by my son’s girlfriend for dessert. It was excellent. Washed down with FWK Chardonnay and FWK Southern Rhône. .

    Sulfur Smell in Primary

    Thanks. I was thinking that approach. Yes SG is below 1 now. I stirred heavily this morning when I was punching down I’ll press tonight and hope it handles it. If not go ahead and add Kmeta.

    Sacrificial Oak during Fermentation

    So I saw this thread and it hit me. I forgot to add oak chips when I started fermenting my Cab and Sangiovese grapes. I did add opti-red and lallzymeEX. I just added some fermaid O because I’m about1/3 through fermentation. Should I go ahead and add them now? Any thoughts?
