    Homemade wine ready


    My grape wine set for 3 months & I just now decanted a gallon of it.

    It's sweet & good tasting at room temperature.

    Using wine yeast helped.

    Bread yeast makes wine taste like crap.

    I figured it cost about $4 a gallon to make.

    Sterilizing everything good prevents it from turning to vinegar.
    Wine vinegar is good for salad dressing though.

    I was bored so I thought I would post my wine experiment.

    Excellent! I've been brewing beer and making mead every weekend. A reported from a local paper/website will be reporting on my brewing this Friday. I'll post links when they are available...

    I live in the south so if you don't at least know a 'shiner you aint from around here.

    My grandfather used to make moonshine with his grandfather when he was a little boy so he knows a lot about the whole making beer/whiskey/etc thing. It's always interesting hearing from others their experiences/exploits.

    Someone's grandfather made moonshine with peaches.
    It was pretty good.

    I'm brewing two beers this weekend and friends are joining me , so they'll brew their beer as well. We'll have a good time, as brewing is really a "social" hobby!

    Thanks! My wife is making homemade pizza, sausages sandwiches, grilled veggies, etc... I made a 5gal keg of homemade root beer for the kids and non-drinkers (like me) and we may have a few recently brewed beers to sample!

    I have made rootbeer.
    It was better than store bought.

    Back then they sold what you needed in the local store & the hardware store.

    David,
    I bought a kit from a company called "Spreckers" or something like that. 1 gallon of concentrate makes 5 gallons of delicious root beer and it was less than $20 for 5 gallons. Not bad! My next batch will be made "from scratch"...
