I've been making wine and beer from basic kits off and on for the past 10 years. I've always enjoyed it but quite frankly had too many hobbies to really get a rotation going. I'd make a kit or two and then drink them! We just had our first child in December and as a result of our budgetary consultations my wine making is about to take off (to save money actually!). I enjoy all types of wine (well maybe not Mad-dog and I've had some bad experiences with Carlo Rossi) and have started some low cost Paklab kits with tweaks (Chardonnay, Cab, Sangiovese, and sauvignon blanc). I'm fine with palatable table wine and would like to get a quick supply built. Some reviews on the higher end kits like the Super Tuscan have got me thinking about the future as well but those will have to wait until summer time. Looking to start an Apfelwein this weekend and perhaps some Skeeter Pee/Dragon Blood in the near future. And then there's that jalapeno wine recipe... Anyway this site has been most useful thus far and I look froward to contributing when I can.
