    Candy Cane wine Recipe

Honestly this wine I have to say was my first 100% success as I have only been doing this a year and had several good wines a couple ok ones and a...

    Candy Cane wine Recipe

    The comment of no body seems about right too, I have heard of people adding a banana soup to this to add body. We are no wine snobs but my wife and I like it!

    Question about long term clearing of Banana wine

    So I bottled this one cleared way faster than I expected. Very alcoholic smelling and tasting. Man, no banana flavor at all. This one will have to age for sure. This one is probably a true 18% ABV. I think I will make another batch and blend the two or I might age it a year in...

    What does this mean, Help please?

    I read in the old days if a mouse died getting into the wine (what a joyous way to go btw) the Italians would retrieve the mouse, cremate it, then add the ashes to the wine affected to prevent it from going bad. What did you do with the fruit fly? I would presume you just tossed it? Oh man...
