Even if you are from the U.K., you are still welcome here (I say that in jest as 3/4 of my heritage is originally from the U.K, the balance from Germany, though that was quite a few years in the past). Actually, quite a few of you are members here. I hope you find all the information you are looking for and look forward to you helping us out with our wine making problems!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone, been making wine for the last year has a result of over growing of fruit and veg from my allotment which I was reluctant to let go to waste. Started off making jams/pickles/chutneys and freezing/preserving but still found a surplus so thought why not try using stock on wine making has we are regular wine drinkers and spend quite a bit on bought in wine.
And now a year down the road have a slowly growing stock of wines nicely maturing away mostly from fruits such has blackberry/strawberry/raspberry/gooseberry/elderberry and elderflower plus a couple of quick turn around kit brews has the wife don't have patience to wait a long time. So the answer to the question from bkisel am now hooked big time.!

Think I was doing kit wines only for about 2 years before trying my hand at fruit/country wines. I now do both but favor the kits.

Hi there roboto, hull has a great music scene and produced some fantastic musicians over the years. I see from your profile picture you are a fly model enthusiast, i'm similar but land based building and racing rc offroad cars mainly 28cc petrol driven stuff with a little nitro in the past.
