13.5 litres white grapes, unknown variety SG 1.090, highest I've come across for English grapes grown outdoors.

Can't wait to pick the Black Hamburgs ripening in the green house, a few on each bunch are still green! I just wonder how long I can leave them for?

Yes. I have been experimenting with various juices for a number of years, but the original recipe I started with was WoW. Sometimes I use Grape juice, sometimes I don't.

What's the difference between WoW and Easy White?

Oranges... Wink easy white and wine No1 are the same thing using apple juice and white grape juice, Wurzel claims the orange juice version but whatever fruit juice is used grape juice is always there for vinosity although 8oz of sultanas or other dried vine fruit may be used instead.  Smiley

Yesterday I started another batch of Wine.

Black Cherry (Tinned fruit plus RGJ and some left over Red Grapes) - 5litres

My wife thinks I've gone mad with all this wine, but I pointed out that a lot of it won't be ready for a year.

Er yes trying to explain the unsightly fermenting kit and potential volume of wine is never easy but just you try asking why there are 27 tins of tomatoes and at least 6 large bottles of Persil and fabric conditioner never-mind the bulk buy packs of tissues and washing up sponges under the sink.

PS fabric conditioner stops towels from drying you properly! Grin Grin

Chris, Chili seeds and membrane in it will be hot but good for Thai/Vietnamese style cooking, membrane and seeds out and not too much chili, made sweet and strong it will make a dessert shot ideal with chocolate desserts.

Lets just be careful with dem chilies. Wink
