Hello and greetings!

Thought I should take a moment to say "Hi." Fairly new to wine making, and I'm sure that this forum will be of major benefit in the upcoming weeks.

1st Kit in the primary now. (RJ RQ Muller-Thurgau)

Hello James and welcome to the forum.

Good to have some new faces this morning!

quick questions.. why did you choose that particular kit? What will you choose next? Have you picked a spot for your cellar yet?

hehehehhe

The choice of the kit was twofold. First, my wife is a fan of sweet wines, with Reisling near the top of her list. Second, the homebrew shop I visited made me an offer I couldn't refuse. They had two of the RQ kits that were approaching the end of their shelf life. 50% off is hard to turn down!

As far as cellar location goes, we have a small utility room in the lower level of a split level. Sized about 6 x 10. Temp remains between 60 - 70 year round. Once I remove all of my tools from it, I think it will do fine. (Any good recommendations for wine racks?)

As far as the next style of kit, I'm up in the air between the Aus. Meritage and the Super Tuscan kits. Both lean towards my preferances (dry, bold, reds).

Howdy and Welcome James...
Don't laugh... I use those heavy duty milk crates turned on their sides for my wine racks until I can get motivated to get some "high-class" racks. They work great for temporary racks.

James,

Hello and welcome!
Where in the mid-South do you live? You can add your location to your profile and it will show up on the left of your post under your name.

Good luck with your M-T.
