Ok, back to wine for me, working at the local home brew shop right now, this is one job that I really like!
I'm with you. So working at the HB shop are you learning to make beer along with wine?

There is finally a home brewing supply store in my town!!!!!! My wife told me about it since it is down the street from her job. That was a bad idea on her part. My new candy store!!!! The place is Ozark Mountain Brew Supply. They seem to have quite a bit of stuff.

how old is it? At the beginning, it would look like pepto. If it is smelling great than it should be fine.

Just pitched the slurry from my sangria wine kit to my batch of skeeter pee yesterday. It looks like it is trying to start rolling on!! :D

I don't think they are the same entity. I talked to the owner and he works a full time job and does this on the side. Next time I'm in there I'll talk to him about our little family and see if is the same company.

They don't like being in sinks either. I dropped my first one in the sink and the top broke off. Stupid glass hydrometer!!!! LOL

At the shop now for an oil change and tire rotation. Then off to bottle my Orange chocolate port and get some work done in the yard.

I buy them in 3's, I find they get lonely when left alone and tend to commit suicide. When they have friends they tend to be happier.

I'm like djrockinsteve, I have a special rack just for holding all my hydrometers. I probably have around ten of them but only two are identical. I have numerous hydrometers for reading brix on a very small scale range making it easier for these tired old eyes to see. They range from -5 up to about 45 brix. I also have other hydrometers for temp, sg and other things.
