Late Season Apple Wine

Picked in mid Oct, the wine is complete. Very good flavor. Iíve bottle up 2 of the 3 and the ABV is 13+% and 10.5+%

I donít know why one has more alcohol then the other, or maybe they are the same, and it was operator error in measuring. Still great taste. One slightly more sweet then the other, with a TSP of Acid Blend less then the one with a bit more lip puckering taste. 25 and 29 bottles so far.

Next week Iíll bottle up the last 3 gallons what was a 2nd run use of the fruit from the first 2 batches. All total it will be 69 bottles from a 5 gallon bucket of Apples picked in Osburn, ID.

Next year Iím going to concentrate on this Apple Wine and then the Elderberry. The Apricot Wine was great tasting but does not clear fast enough and ties up the equipment for the next fruit crop. I could solve this and buy more Carboys. Iím looking for use stuff first before making anymore equipment purchases.

Some sweet homemade wine would be awesome and throw in a loaf or two of that awesome looking bread you bake since you are shipping me some wine. Thanks

P.S. almost forgot you may as well throw in a sausage link or two.

Since you ask. Dinner is served, and the show is about today being bread day, fresh warm bread, and homemade sausage.

I'll pick you up on the way, Steve. I have to go right by your house on the way.

I want to send some to Chico. He'll be the canary. Let's see if he survives first.
