    Bought a 23L bucket of Kerner today. Never made it before. Also using a yeast I've never used before, 58W3.
    Should be interesting.

    I always thought the smell and taste of vinegar/onion was a bad sing of spoilage

    I bottled an RJ Spagnols Cru Select Australian Cabernet Shiraz Merlot last week and now have an Eclipse Nocturnal Wine, a Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine, stabilizing.

    I agree, tastes do differ. Chateauneuf-du-pape wines are a favorite of mine.

    Just started bulk aging an RJS Riesling Traminer blend. One of my coworkers gave me all of his brewing gear, which included three one-gallon carboys and one three gallon carboy, so I'm thinking I might pick up a dessert kit on Friday :)

    Wow. 13 wines in bulk aging! I didn't know you did the Brunello. I was just eyeballing that one on the LP website.

    I told you I had 18 carboys of various sizes with wine in them!

    The Brunello is 22 months old (+ a week), so I can steal a taster from it if you'd like. I need to rack it anyway and add some Kmeta, I'll just steal the taster before the Kmeta if you promise to drink it quickly. If you remind me I can drop it off when I pick up the samples for the Chromo next month.

    22 months??? Isn't it time that wine made it to the bottle?

    I would love to sample it before buying one of these. Drink it quickly? Oh, okay.... if I must.

    Craig, do you have a real job. That's about 15 batches a year. Where do you find the time?
