Please give the steps and chemicals required to prepare the home made red wine from grapes
You can read the threads here in the forums. You will find recipes and other information.
The MoreWine website is a great place to read about the process.
Recently, someone posted a pretty cool flowchart of the process, was it you @cmason1957 ?
https://winemaking.jackkeller.net/index.asp this site also has instructions and recipes.
Presque Isle has instructions as well:

you forgot two steps aging and drinking. great job though!!!!
I really, really wish I had the artistic talent to make those. I found them on the web somewhere. And yes, I agree aging and drinking have been left out. Good thing we don't leave those steps out.
wow, thanks for the details. i will try to start with your ideas
This is copied straight from the piambianchi book
Nice diagram. Sometimes pictures speak a thousand words . . .
Just checked my Cabernet Sauvignon yesterday, started August 11, 2018 from Texas Hill country grapes we picked that day. It has been bulk aging in a 6 gal carboy for 6 months now. I added 1 cup of French medium toast Oak at the start of the aging process with 1 1/4 tsp of additional wine tannin and put in another cup of Oak yesterday. Have been checking it every 3 months. Coming along nicely, but did a touch more Oak. Good nose, legs, taste and finish. Looking at 3 to 6 months additional aging. Could actually bottle now, but experimenting with bulk aging is an important part of this for me.
