    So I gotta say i was really pleased with Pintos, met the owner who was actually pulling grapes out of storage at 8am...think the fruit was better quality than corrados....
    Question I have is on the crush....the better grapes seems to come away from stems better...i was using manual crusher.
    A) is it more or or less impossible to keep all stems out of must even with destemmer? I did crushing over 1inch chicken wire to catch majority, then picked as much as possible by have when mixing in k meta and nutrient.
    B)based on the mess I made in basment I'd say I need to do outdoors and figure out how to get from driveway to basement...what do you guys do?

    If using a web browser, up at the top right of every page is an envelope icon, they call them conversations.

    If on the Android version of the app, there is an envelope looking icon at the top. Click on that, then the envelope with the + at the bottom to start a new conversation.

    I use a motorized crusher/destemmer and it makes childs play out of destemming the grapes it takes longer to clean up than to crush and destem but although it gets all the branch stems out there is always small bits of stems that get through , I just leave them in and have no trouble with them. And outside is the place to do it.
