    LE lights project

    It may sound weird asking for a question like this on a wine making forum but here it goes. Anyone here has good knowledge on the different chips and technologies of LED strips, such as WS2815 12v or SK6812 5v/12v, etc? Thinking about buying directly from a vendor in China, well, I guess ALL...

    WMT app

    After digging around I saw the post that the mobile app is now discontinued. This is really a bummer, I always use the app to load pictures from my iPhone while on the move. Is this a definite and not reversible decision? Can you re-consider this, I use the mobile app about 95% of the times (not...

    Resort recommendation in Bahamas

    Looking online for reviews about different resorts in Nassau and thought about posting the question here as well. I want to bring my wife in June for our 25th wedding anniversary, a 3-night stay that would not break the If you've been in Bahamas, I'd like to hear any feedback. Thanks.

    Judge: Is there any reason you could not serve as a juror in this case? Juror: I don't want to be away from my job that long. Judge: Can't they do without you at work? Juror: Yes, but I don't want them to know it.

    A dad grew increasingly displeased as his teenage daughter and her boyfriend studied in her room late one evening. Finally losing his patience, he knocked sharply on her door. Her boyfriend immediately opened it and asked if something was wrong. "I have to ask you to move your car," the...

    Last night I was relaxing on the sofa watching TV when I heard my wife's voice from the kitchen: "Oh sweetheart, what would you like for dinner, my love? Chicken, beef or lamb?" I said, "Thank you, darling. I think I'll have chicken." She replied, "You're havin' a peanut butter and jelly...

    I screwed up........

    I had 3 batches of wine in bulk aging for a long time (made from grapes). I am very careful with all my notes and printed the Word document page and placed on each carboy and barrel with the corresponding wine. Last week I decided to bottle a white wine first and then tackled the 1st carboy...

    Easy Clean

    I have a 6gal plastic 'carboy' that was stained after racking out some red wine that was bulk aging in it for like a year. I had forgotten I had this easy clean cleaner in the basement, never used it before. So mixed a Tsp in 3/4 gal of hot water and poured into the 6gal, the...

    Eight-year-old Sally brought her report card home from school. Her marks were good…mostly A’s and a couple of B’s. However, her teacher had written across the bottom: Sally is a smart little girl, but she has one fault. She talks too much in school. I have an idea I am going to try, which I...

    WineXpert Toasted Marshmallow Dessert/Port style

    Started this kit just now. Nov 17, 2017 SG 1.129 Added a tiny bit of the f-pack, maybe 5%. Added the 30gr toasted oak powder. Pitched the two packets of EC-1118. I found it surprising that the box doesn't say Winexpert anywhere, just Global Vintners. Anyone making or made this kit?
