Looking for some help

Hey...
I just started making my first batch of wine (from a kit). My wife and I want to start making both wine and beer - haven't gotten the equipment for the beer yet. That all being said... I'm going to start working on my coal-cellar. I wanna clean it up and turn it into a wine-cellar.

THAT being said... I'm trying to find some good shelving units for the bottles. Smurfe... where did you get those shelves??

Just trying to find the right thing to do.

I ordered them from Sam's Club online. I don't think they sell them in the stores. The wife then went to Hobby Lobby and bought the frilly stuff around them.

These racks are commercial wine racks. I thought they turned out very well and were considerably cheaper than wood. I believe I paid $57.00 a piece plus shipping. There are 2 racks there hooked together.

Here is the link

Here's some modular racks I have made.... They work great but I need something more simple and easier to make quickly for large volume storage :D

Wade, I was looking at that on your site yesterday. I want to get where you are at. ¿How on earth do you manage to drink all of that wine? ¿Or do you just have a lot of friends?

I have a wood working shop here at the house. I am already planning out bottle storage.

I dont drink a lot and thats why im having a problem with overage. I have all my racks full now and bottles are piling up on the floor now and I still have 175 bottles worth bulk aging. This is the main reason that I am going to start playing with distillates now as I have way too much wine, I also have to make a few more batches of beer as my cornies are almost empty.

Sounds like you have a serious alcohol problem. Maybe an intervention is in order.

See why I need much more room!!!



On the rack now is my Mosti Vinafera Noble Cab.. My GA Riesling is the only one waiting for new storage now, but as of now I only have 16 bottles left after the inlaws grabbed a few up.. Very popular!! Have that one in the basement on regular shelving as of now..

BTW.. The primaries in the background were used for an IPA I just made.. Needed to run the small blowoff tube into a bucket in the other primary because SWMBO was complaining about the hop smell!!

Does anyone have any other ideas for bulk storage. Within the next year, I am going to need storage for approx. 160 bottles. Pics or plans wuld be a great help. It should be simple and cheap. Thanks
