Hello everyone! My name is Barry from Colorado. I've been making wine for about 4 years. It started off as a curious hobby and turned into a serious pass time. I have made wine from fresh fruits, as well as, several kits.

I am looking forward to expanding my knowledge of the science of wine.

I'll be hanging out and reading posts for a while.

Cheers!

Welcome to WMT!

"It started off as a curious hobby and turned into a serious pass time" is a very polite and actually understated and subdued way of describing how it affected some here. :rolleyes:
Dave is a relative beginner who quickly became the poster child for "Dang! I can ferment that!". He hasn't made dirt wine yet, but we have a pool going, betting on when he does it. 🤣

Ribbing Dave is good natured -- in a few years I expect him to become the next Jack Keller.

Thank you! Very kind of you to say that!

On a related note, 92 degrees today and I was collecting black walnut leaves. Just a "serious pastime", nothing to be concerned about.

There is no reason you can't eventually publish a book of your recipes/notes. :)
I appreciate the compliment! Like many here wine making has filled a need to experiment, learn, play, and have a heck of a lot of fun. And having a glass of home made beautiful magic is...sorry...intoxicating. Wish I started 20 years ago. If I live to 143 - as planned - I'll know enough to do that book.

Welcome Barry. What have you been making?
Thank you for the welcoming. Recently, I have been making a few kit wines, but experimenting with organic nutrients. The results are surprising. I started off with fruit wines because of an abundance of fruit from our trees and grape vines. It sorta' grew :) .
