Alright, Santa was very good to this new winemaker. I gave my wife a list of wine needs/wants and called the local wine store to let him know she was coming.

Santa brought me:

A brew bucket with spigot for bottling

Ferm - Go packets

Carboy Brush

Carboy Dryer

The scale with grams that I have been eyeballing

Bungs for 6 - 6.5 - 7 openings

Run of the mill stuff for veterans but pretty exciting not to have to borrow this stuff for a newbie like myself.

I got a $125 gift certificate from a store that carries RJ Spagnols and Cellar Craft products. Now I have to decide what kit to get. I could wait till next fall and see what Hightails come out. (Sorry Wade couldn't resist. :i )

Corker

That is next on my list... My grandfather had an old capper he and his father used to cap root beer they would make every year (the worst root beer EVER). However it has some sentimental value. I am going to see if I can make a corker using the base at least. Might be a fun project for the winter months

Santa brought me the brix ATC refractometer (sold at williamsbrewing.com)

due to weather I haven't gotten my gifts from the in-laws...had some cleaning brushes (dip tube) on there, and some misc small stuff.

all i really need now is a 6 gallon better bottle for these 6gal wine kits.

A good corker isn't that expensive and I can't imagine an easy way to convert a capper to a corker without ruining the capper and probably costing more than buying a new floor corker.

How about keeping it for a project you might want a capper for. Maybe you'll want to make beer or a sparkling wine or whatnot.

I always say "be what you're going to be, but be good at it". Tooth, you must have been really good at being bad this year! :):):):)

Must be. It's the only thing that makes sense. Funny thing is that I don't work at it at all... it just comes naturally. :)
