now that my kit is in the waiting part, i'd like to start a second wine from fruit. my question is this...i could do peach, or blueberry, or blackberry. i thought about a blueberry/blackberry but after internet research i wonder if i should do these together or do them seperately and then blend? what has been your experiences?

Its better to blend pater as trying to get the perfect ratio up front is near impossible as one is always much stronger then the other and will hide te weaker one.

When I make wine from juice I prefer to do them separately for blending purposes. This way you can experiment with the ratios of the finished wine to get the exact taste you are looking for.

got the blueberries crushed in the primary. was pleasantly surprised at the bag i ordered. it was a very nice size for my primary and the amount of blueberries i have started with. have added water and sugar and waiting for room temp. wish me luck on my first ever truly homemade wine. my husband and son have bet 10$ it won't taste good:(
i told them if it was good they couldn't have any...:w

How did you find a photo of my Uncle Magellan??
That is exactly how he looked every time he had a case of old milwalkie under his belt and was about to drive home pee'd off. The last words he would utter before he left the chicken on the grill to burn was "the H**l with it!"
