They are from some friends of mine. I think it is a 10 acre vineyard. We had enough people to stomp them all in about a hour. also this was the end of their harest. I have some Cab sav and cab Franc from the same vineyard from 2 years ago and yes it taste good now, but will be better with age.
I have found 6 gallon ones at Liquor Barn here in Ky. Bad thing now they are not stocking much now. I was going to get some bottles last week but the shelves were empty of a lot of wine making supplies.
I do some work for a wine barrel factory. They use a gas fire for the toasting, what the guide for light, medium, or dark toast is I don't know but I do know that it will make the flavors different.
I just planted 50 Riesling and 50 Shiraz vines in central Kentucky. To bad I will not get anything out of them for 3-4 years. Lucky I have a friend that has mature vines. I will more than likely add 50 - 100 vines next year.
What about one of the Better Bottles. It would be a lot cheaper on the shipping end, but I don't know about the cost of the bottle. Also you can use the spout to drain the lees of. I am thinking of getting one for my next run.
Do I need to place the lid on tight or no lid at all on the primary fermenter?
Instructions say to use the lid but dosen't it need to get air to ferment correctly?
racer turning to wine making:)
