I started making wine and beer 6-7 years ago, went all gung ho. I made a raspberry wine from the garden and bottled it successfully, I made some others too, they were drinkable. I then bought more gear and made three batches in the fall about 6 years ago. Alas, things happened and everything got burried in the utility room where it sat. I want to know what chances there are its good and what concerns I should have. I suppose I should trot a jar of each to the local homebrew but I am too embarrased to share the story in public. I was letting the wine settle before bottling with the airlocks on, which are of course completely dried out. My goal is to find that I have made a new discovery in how to make wine, the new propoer way as it is so good. HA! But seriously, how do I check and what should I expect. I figure a sip and probably spit technique might be in order. What sorts of concerns should I have with this? One is made from a canned wine grape, another is a mix of muscadine and some other fruits (apples plus) to reduce acitidity overall, and the third is raspberrries and possibly some of the native grapes. Thanks for your input!
