wine night

Last night we bottled two batches of wine. The first one was a German Traminer Spatlese and was quite good. It’s been a while since we’ve made a German wine and I had forgotten how much I like them. The second one was a blend of muscat, symphony, sauvignon blanc, and chardonnay. This, too, was good, albeit a bit too sweet. I think I messed up when I forgot to check the specific gravity at one point in the process. But, at least it tastes good–I was a bit worried about that.

I have two red kits to make. I need to get on that this week. The bad news is that I don’t have anywhere to put them once they are bottled (the wine racks are full). The good news is that we’re going to need to drink a lot of wine in order to make some room.
