    Hello all, I lurked the forums for a bit before joining and it looks to be a great community you have here. I am from the greater philly area and mostly make fruit wines, I tried a Nebbiolo kit once and wasn't a big fan so I decided to stick with fruits. Blueberry, apple, peach, cherry, etc. I do want to try a batch of the skeeter pee though, never heard of it until I found your site! Looking forward to sharing my experiences and learning from yours!

    Welcome from a fellow fruit wine maker.
    My spin is if I can’t eat it why did I plant it, , last thing picked from the garden was butternut squash, so guess what the last wine to ferment was.
    At one period made pasta sauces in Pensauken so I know your airport.

    Thank you for the warm welcome. Here is a pic of the last batch of blueberry I did with 15lbs of berries in a 5 gallon batch. Not as dark as some make but still has a ton of blueberry flavor. 14.7% abv

    Pretty color!, , state fair assigns only 3 points to appearance.
    Aroma 6 and flavor 6 points so if it tastes good it’s a winner.
