Good to hear Ben.Update: I've ordered all of the stuff I need to do it and now it just needs to show up and I just need to get the grape juice!
I think I may also try my hand at cider, too.
That is great story and a monumental testimony to what real men will do to have a good time together. Smoke some cigarettes, chew some tobacco and maybe wreck a house just to make a little good homemade wine. And of course, the homemade wine leads to even more rib-splitting laughter and lifelong memories, or even arrests.My father and grandfather used to make wine in the cellar of their home where they had a wine press up against the main beam of the building. They'd press the grapes as much as they could, take a break and have a cigarette. They'd take a couple of more turns on the press, , take a break....this went on for a while. My father tells me during one break they noticed a small shaft of light coming across the cellar. Upon investigation it turns out they were actually lifting the house off the foundation. They (rightfully) decided they were done turning the press that day.
