    An amish guy down the road was telling me about his father's wine recipe that didn't require yeast. He bragged that they only used sugar and it was so sweet. Anyone ever heard of this? Anyone willing to help me get started? Need a recipe....

    That's called fruit juice lol. No yeast means no fermentation.

    I got a Walgreens about 2 miles away. That’s about as easy as it gets. No but seriously I must be a cheap wine drinker. My wife has an uncle that is financially well off and he has spent time in Napa Valley studying wine making. He is Italian and also visits the mothership from time to time. I swear to me his wine taste like arse! And don’t be trying to give me no room temperature stuff either! I like it cold.
    invasion36 and I didn't say like this.
  4. I used to be the same way but after I downed a couple bottles of decent red blends I started to appreciate the flavor of the grapes. Much like a good stout, drinking a good wine cold suppresses the flavors. I can’t even drink those chilled, sweet Lambrusco wines anymore.

    I like wine. Just about any semi-sweet with 12 to 13 percent alcohol hits my taste buds just right. To me dry wine sucks. As does the really sweet low alcohol stuff.

    Semi-sweet is where it's at. I have been making roughly 5 gallons a month but I just found a new source of juice and have 10 gallons going right now to be ready at Christmas. If they taste good, will try to make 30 gallons a month. My best wine is around 10% but I have made several at 13%.

    I buy a twist off jug for the holidays every year. Keep it on the back porch to wash turkey or prime rib down. Lambrusco makes a great base for Gluwien as well. (Warmed, spiced wine, German specialty)

    Supposedly grape skins have natural yeast . Depending on how sweet the grapes are you can add sugar to adjust the alcohol content. If you are not going to store it long the alcohol doesn't have to be as high, so go by taste.

    Malbec is the only type of wine ive ever liked. Its pretty dry. Some brands and years are better than others but i dont care for many of the wines folks around here make. Too sweet, and tastes like kids fruit punch with a shot of everclear in it. With that said i still have a taste.
