Got Wine?Do you have wine for summer?

Great Beer!
Made Easy!

Only 3 bottles left?!?!

October 6, 2011

I went down to my wine cellar (basement) yesterday and discovered that I only have 3 bottles of white wine left in my wine rack. This is not good!

We all need something to aspire to!

If you’re like me and have procrastinated all summer with your wine making (a beautiful summer with no mosquitos seems to have had me doing more wine enjoying than wine making), it’s now time to get going.

The best start to your winemaking would be to give your equipment a good cleaning. Give your pails and carboys and all of your other equipment a good overnight soaking in a solution of Sparkle-brite. Put 3-4 heaping tablespoons of Sparkle-brite in your primary pail and fill past 23 litre mark with cool water. Let it sit overnight, rinse well and start your next wine kit- before you reach for that last bottle and there isn’t one!
