Hi , I'm Madmikes1. . Glad to be here. New to forum not new to fermenting. I make about 120 gallons of wine a year give of take 20. I make almost all grape wine with the exception of Blackberry Wine and Pear and Apple Cider. This year, if I can continue to get European grape juice from Burnaby BC will be almost all European wines. But if, a good grape juice I will just have to ferment it. BTW I dont drink, just taste. My neighbors love my hobby
Right now I have about 700 bottles in my cellar(down stairs bedroom) Oldest is 6 years old and it has survived only because it is not mine to let anyone drink. Girlfriend does claim some of the fruits of my labor

Free tasting sorta discribes my house. Beta, Idaho is close enough I may need to put a lock on wine. BTW I scored 20 gallons of frozen Chardonnay must today(last years ) and I see fermenting starting Monday,. BTW 100 is only a guess By Monday I will have 30 Gallons in fermenting and that will take me way over 100, Grapes havent even been picked yet this year.

how does Tabasco chili Wine taste and who thought that one up LOLOLOL

DamnI will have to buy more carboys to catch up. Damn cool to meet people who are as nuts as I am, so when do we start posting how much we spend or do we really not want to think about it.

I am approaching the 2500 mark. Lost count now. I keep finding wines I had forgotten about. Still, they are always a pleasant surprise aren't they?
I did open an old bottle of mead last night. 8 year in the bottle. I think I found heaven. :)
