    Default Last years wine

    I made 3 gallons of Apple and Apple and raisin after the disappointment of the cider the year before, should be ready soon, it looks a lovely cider colour. 3 gallons of Blackberry too, but I will try and keep that a bit longer if I can resist it.

    Here's a tip - syphoning the wine into bottles works better if you take the end of the syphon out your mouth.

    It's such a temptation to have the odd glass and suddenly you've drunk the lot. If you can resist drinking it and hold off bottling and maturing in bulk, even in a gallon jar, will pay dividends. I normally make 5 gallons at a time and take the wine from the big container which has a tap fitted! Trouble is the when it's just maturing I'm usually at the bottom of the container.
