Got a fancy schmancy wine kit - a blend of three Spanish grapes


Bubbling nicely in the fermenter


This hobby could be as involving as photography. So many things to get up to speed on quickly when you start the fermenting.


for example - vacuum de-gassing and transferring from bottle to bottle


and, just like photography, what equipment do I really need and what do I really want ?  :)


next up - a still

Congrats, my fermenting friend :)

I have never made wine, but I like making beer. I look forward to watching your adventures.

EDIT: One of my favorite things is watching the little yeasties zooming around the wort, when a batch of beer is in its really active fermenting stage. It looks like the water is boiling with all the activity in the carboy. I often get mesmerized watching it.

It never stops amazing me.
