    What's for Dinner?

    Thanks and also to Ibglowin for the link. I remember seeing your project. We moved to a new house and a pizza oven has always been on my plan I’m not sure when it will get to the top of the list though.

    Label Peelers: Up to 50% off entire store

    I haven’t thought that far ahead yet. Last time I did a Riesling I cold soaked it to let the crystals drop and did a backsweetening bench trial. I don’t recall doing any real tweaks, but open to ideas!

    Label Peelers: Up to 50% off entire store

    I’m not sure if it is the same people running the store as when it was in Kent, OH. I agree they used to be friendly and helpful. They moved to a warehouse in Ravenna and I haven’t seen the same people there. In the new location I asked a question and was told they couldn’t help because they...

    WE Island Mist Tweaks

    Peach Apricot Chardonnay. So, by mistake I put the f-pack in at the beginning. I planned to add grape concentrate, but grabbed the F-pack instead. Should I let it go to dry and back sweeten or stop fermentation with the sorbate before dry? Starting SG was 1.09(I added sugar also). Any...

    Finally built my wine rack

    We recently moved so it presented an opportunity to make a new cellar. I built ladder racks using the design from “The Homebuilt Winery” book and the diamond racks from @sourgrapes. Thank you for the drawings and notes!

    Moving - should I try to transplant my vines?

    Thanks for the feedback. I plan to give it a try. I’m hoping it will get me to grapes quicker than starting over and I just hate to see them go to waste.

    Moving - should I try to transplant my vines?

    We are moving in May. I have vines that are 3 and 4 years old and the new owner is not interested in the vines, so I would like to transplant them. I figure that it is spring and my vines are fairly young so they might have a chance. My vines are Cayuga, chambourcin, Marquette and Noiret...

    Malolactic Fermentation Help

    Thanks for the comments Sorry I didn’t reply earlier. A little busy here lately. I’m thinking it was SO2 issues. I used Kmeta to sanitize. Maybe to much residual left. Also I know the Cabernet I accidentally added some when I racked. Both were buckets of juice. PH was 3.6 using a test strip...
