Hi My name is mike, I am 33 and a father of 5 from PA. I just got into wine making last fall when I went on a trip to vivit my wife's family. We stopped at a fruit stand near Erie, PA And I purchased a basked full of concord and a basket full of Niagara grapes. I made 2 2.5 gallon batches consisting of 50/50 concord/niagara grapes I started both in mid october and bottled the first batch in early february and the other in early march. I was very surprised at the differences in the two. the first was sweet and very fruity, the second had a higher alcohol content and was moderately fruity. I have just started my second batch, a 5 gallon batch of apple wine, which is what brings me here. I will be asking some questions about it very soon.
