    Welcome. What kind of wine are you making, how much? Let us know your knowledge level, and any questions you may have (starting a new thread for questions may be prudent though). We're ready to help!

    Thank you G259! I am currently making a 6 gallon Wine Expert Island Mist Black Raspberry wine kit. Should be racking it into the carboy by the end of next week. I consider myself a novice at wine making. Still have much to learn. I look forward to all the assistance from the forum. Been reading quite a few threads already.

    Looks like you're ahead of me already! My biggest is 3 gallons, I usually do 100% juices from the grocery store, but have done strawberry, ginger (1 gal.), and have a 'Dragon Blood' (frozen berries) going, 3 gal. I consider myself a noob, only 2 years in.
    My brother's friend has made wine for a long time, mostly from apples he raids from a local orchard. Oh the stories of him getting chased by the farmer, dropping apples while running away! However, I buy mine from the store, and would never condone such shenanigans!

    I like the farmer story! I too would prefer to buy from the store. Much less stressful and legal.

    Welcome Copterdoctor!
    You must try the Dragons blood if you haven't already!
