I saw that you went to Europa Pombalense, do they have petite Sirah already?
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?
Didnt go there, I called on friday I only asked if they had cab, which they did....they said they justv arrived..just give them a call they seem nice enough over the phone
Just an aside, any body hear from AJ? (JerseyFresh)Figured he'd be active this fall, and I really learned alot from him over the past year(you guys as well) an havent seem him so far this season...he was always a good read...
Does anyone know how to send private messages in this forum?
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.
Top right of the page click on the envelope that says conversations
Thanks. The way it's set up made me believe it's not private.

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.
