    Guys, Distilling is Illegal. In New Jersey, it is a misdemeanor to make hard liquor and a felony if you sell it.

    Not to be a sick-in-the-mud, but the topic of distilling is discouraged on this site..

    Sauv. Blanc came out beautiful clear and crisp. DW is loving it. The red is now in Oak and last year's red is out and in bottles now.
    Next dry day I will be pruning the vines and fixing trellises. Looking forward to another year of feeding the damn deer and birds. Good thing i keep bees for honey. It keeps me positive.

    BM4X4 worked but the flavor is off for me. Next time I will surely use RC 212 I like that better. Half in oak half in glass for 6 months and then switch oak to bottles and glass to oak.
