Good day all,

Was a member of this forum for a short time well over a year ago but relocated our lives to Vermont and took some time off from wine making. Happy to say that we are well into it again.

Our first four kits are a year and a half in the bottle (well, what's left of them anyway) and truly delightful. We've tasted some of our mistakes (not degassing enough on one batch) and delighted in how well they improve when you exercise patience.

Just bottled: Barolo
Carboy: Tempernillo
Primary: White Zin
Still on the UPS truck: Chianti

Welcome back, what was your username before? I have taken over this site for Txbrew who used to run it but really didnt have time and I and my crew have worked hard to fix what fell apart in here. Maybe I can find some of your old posts and reinstate your #'s here.

Orange, that's about 1.5 to 2 hours north of me. We're down by Okemo mountain. The snow's right around the corner. Time to hunker down by the fire with an open bottle or two.

Well it's getting to that time of year again. The skiers came to town for Thanksgiving but there was no snow.....hopefully next weekend. The town needs the traffic and money that the mountain brings.

Sorry to hear about your injury......wine making, much safer and much cheaper. I'll enjoy a tall and frosty one at DJ's for ya.
