Wine making

wine making Oct 13 1

Having gained 20kg of green grapes in a swap, today I stripped them from the stalks, crushed them and put them in a large fermenting bucket. This is our first attempt at wine making for over a decade so it will be interesting to try the results.

I discovered a use for the stalks tonight. The goats rather enjoyed eating them!
