Wine anyone?

23 May, 2013

My stocks are getting dangerously low as I didn’t make much wine last year, and I’m down to my last twenty or so bottles. But this year I am making sure I build up an extensive and expansive stock and keep it stocked.

Here is a glimpse of my lounge today:


That’s a total of 11 gallons in various stages of brewing and fermenting, which equates to 66 bottles. There is plum, cranberry, rhubarb, parsnip and yellow plum. All of which I have made and drunk before, all of which are very potent. Thanks to two friends of friends having a clear out recently, there are another 7 demijohns waiting to be filled, which means another 7 gallons which means another 42 bottles.

    Omg! O.o I don’t drink wine anymore, but if I did, I’d hate to live so far from you! lol

  2. My mom makes dandelion and elderberry wine. I love a sweet red wine.

  3. You’ll have plenty then. ๐Ÿ™‚ Where we came from (Indiana) the Amish did a lot of dandelion wine. And a lot of baking. I love baking and cooking too.

  4. I love wine…and the fact you are such a handy wine maker.

  5. Wow. That’s a lot of wine…. ๐Ÿ™‚ – Life’s too short to drink bad wine Love the sound of rhubarb!

    • rhubarb is constistently good, i have two massive rhubarb heads on my allotment so i make about 5 or 6 gallons a year and a million crumbles. And it’s all free ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’m not a massive drinker of wine, and when I do, it’s a rose. In fact the only wine I’ve ever nearly got naked for was one called ‘The straw hat’ – that was delish! But yours looks even more. Is home made wine called – Moonshine by any chance? Because my friend has just started making that – he’s done an apple and pomegranate combo and that’s good!

    I bet you’re popular with the locals ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • well the rhubarb has a pinkish tinge to it, so you might want to try some of that. you dont even have to get naked for it ๐Ÿ˜‰
      not sure, i think moonshine is more like spirits, thats a whole different level, you need to be an expert in chemistry for that! Home brew is quite strong enough for me! xx

  7. This is the kind of post I like to see… I’m impressed. You here about a lot of people making beer, but not much about wine. They sound delicious… well maybe not the parsnip.

  8. My God! There’s a misspelling in my comment above… now no one will think I am perfect!

    I decided to go proactive on Choonsday… so we don’t end up with another sucky one… how about something by Chromeo… ‘Hot Mess’ would be nice.

    • I dont know that one, i’ll research. you could always launch a rival choosday slot?

      • No, I wouldn’t want to steal your hoard of female admirers with my superior taste in musical suggestions. I am shocked you do not know Chromeo. They are right up your alley.

  9. You are a very industrious man – that is very cool. What is the liquid you use to start your wine? It sounds like chemistry to me!

  10. I say yes please, as I open my mouth and wait for the sweet nectar only you can give me. Your wine is the sugary mixture that I crave. โค

  11. This is a good example of DYI too.

  12. I am impressed with your wine making skills… and envious you have so much!
