I started making wine just before summer and now i am just starting to enjoy the fruits of my labor... I have 3 different batches in bottles and i like 2/3 right now... they have some time to age yet but a couple our good now... I drank my first bottle yesterday and it was very nice, very clean effect and didnt give me a headache later in the day like most red wines do if i just have one glass with dinner.... Thank you for all the help, and i got a whole bunch more in the pipeline

Congrats. Probably due to lower sulfites in home made wine. I get the headaches to but not as severe as with commercial wines.

Come on Smurfe, you know better.
Sulphites do a lot but they do not cause headaches.

I keep forgetting, it were the histamines or flavonoids or something like that which causes headaches. But surely not the sulphite.

To answer your question tom.... its the banana i dont like, turns out i dont like Bananas... lol, kinda has a banana laffy taffy taste to it i think... but it was my very first wine, easy recipe and bananas are cheap. The two i like are peach raz and Mango Strawberry.... My Lady is in agreement with me....

Funny thing is... once i got a feel for how to make wines... I made those two off the top of my head... didnt need to seek out a recipe...only one issue and it was nothing a copper pipe couldnt fix.

I hate searching through threads so if ou want to know something about his just ask. Id rather spend 5 minutes typing then 10 minutes searching! Basically thugh you just clean and sanitize a copper pipe and stir the snot out of it a few times.
