Winemaking


About a year ago, my husband got me my first wine-making kit. Since then, I’ve made strawberry, pear, and apple wine. (Strawberry was my first experience with wine-making, so it wasn’t really my best batch). The pear wine turned out much better, and the apple wine (which we just got to taste today) turned out even better 🙂

This past Christmas, the hubby got me an even bigger and better wine-making kit which includes a much larger bucket for making larger batches of wine, corks and wine bottles as well as a corker, a better syphon, a refractometer for measuring % brix/specific gravity, pH balance tester, and a water quality tester. Below are some pictures of my yummy apple wine and some of the equipment.
